Wylie has produced its fair share of quality softball players throughout the years, and 2016 was no different.
Over the course of several months, there were a good number of Wylie and Wylie East representatives who acquitted themselves quite well on the diamond. In fact, some of them stood out enough to earn spots on the 10-5A All-District team.
Standing out over them all was Wylie senior Brooke Dumas, who led the Lady Pirates to a second-place finish and was named the district MVP for her efforts.
Dumas had some help, especially when, as a pitcher, she teamed with junior catcher Katelyn Belch to form one of 10-5A’s top batteries.
The latter proved to be such a standout at what is softball’s hardest position, physically and mentally, that she was named the Defensive Player of the Year.
