The season may be long over but Cal-Hi Sports just released its All-State softball teams and several locals were among those recognized.

Etiwanda was the most recognized of the local teams as senior outfielder Vanessa Taukeiaho and senior first baseman Megan Stevens both were named to the first team while pitcher Briana Wheeler and outfielder Candace Haliburton, also both seniors, were third team honorees.

Taukeiaho, earlier named the Daily Bulletin Player of the year,  led the state in home runs with 20 while hitting .640 with 56 RBI.

CIF champion Grand Terrace also had multiple players honored with pitcher Melanie Olmos, who like Taukeiaho has signed with Oklahoma, making first team and junior Eliyah Flores named to the second.

Other first team selections included junior shortstop Taylon Snow of Chino hills and senior catcher Kelly Martinez of Yucaipa.

Here is the link to the entire team selected for those interested.
