Player of the Year honors for Bass, Howerton
SoVaNow.com / June 12, 2013
Bluestone High School has produced two Players of the Year to cap off the James River District spring sports season — with Austin Howerton grabbing the honor for the Baron soccer team and Bridget Bass doing the same for the Lady Baron softball program.
Bass and Howerton led a host of All-District picks at Bluestone with the release of James River District selections this week. The JRD announces its All-District teams after schools in the league have wrapped up post-season play.
Bass, a senior infielder, was one of three members of the Bluestone softball team to earn first team All-District recognition. Also making the first team were sophomore pitcher Krystyn Owen and sophomore outfielder Essence Pulliam.
Bluestone also had a second team pick, sophomore outfielder Morgan Bohannon, and two Honorable Mention selections, Taylor Burke and Bridget Foster.
In boys soccer, Howeron was Bluestone’s lone representative on the James River District first team. Two Barons — Duncan Bradshaw and Colin Robles — made the second team. Earning Honorable Mention recognition were Josh Tharpe and Cole Johnson.
The selections for girls All-District soccer were not made available this week.
In baseball, Bluestone did not crack the first team All-District list, but junior outfielder Deion Mosley did make second team All-District for the Barons. Four Barons — freshman Antwaun Tucker, junior Tre Watson, sophomore Javon Smith and sophomore Darius Baskerville — made the Honorable Mention team.
