Kingston Duo named All-Kitsap softball

The 2010 All-Kitsap County Softball Team was compiled by the sports writers for the Bainbridge Island Review, Bremerton Patriot, Central Kitsap Reporter, North Kitsap Herald and Port Orchard Independent.

Candidates for the team were nominated by the writers for their respective areas. The nominees were then voted on by the writers, with the top vote-getters making the starting lineup. A Coach of the Year and honorable mentions also were selected. The team includes the best players from area schools who not only performed well individually, but also played a role in the success of their team.

STARTING LINEUP:

SS — Meagan Ransier, junior, South Kitsap: Ransier’s versatility showed this year when she moved from behind the plate to the infield and served as the Wolves’ lead-off hitter. She finished with a .424 batting average, including a .739 on-base percentage, and had six doubles, one triple, one home run and 12 RBI. Ransier also had a team-best eight stolen bases.

OF — Kari Fetters, sophomore, Central Kitsap: Fetters finished with a team-high .509 batting average, adding 13 RBI, and also was one of the better defensive players in the area. In one game during the regular season, she recorded two outfield assists.

Coach of the year — Liz McCloskey, Bainbridge: In her sixth year as head coach, McCloskey led the Spartans to their fourth consecutive state tournament appearance and second straight 3A title game. The Spartans, who won the 2009 state championship, won three games in seven hours to advance to the 2010 final, where they fell to Sedro-Woolley.
