All-Area softball team: Area produces wealth of softball talent
Narrowing down the All-Area team is a tough process, but one that has to be done. Morris turned things around and went from a team that won eight games in 2013 to a 21-game winner this year and a sectional finalist before losing to eventual Class 3A state runner-up Manteno. Gardner-South Wilmington won its sectional for the second straight year, while Minooka went from Class 4A champion to a loss in the regional title game. Newark was upset in its regional, while Seneca and Coal City were not as strong as they have been in the recent past.
