LIANA O’KELLY (BLITZ PICK)
White County’s softball team is young, and one of the promising young players is Liana O’Kelly. The sophomore pitcher/outfielder hit .857 in recent games, driving in 4 runs, drawing 4 walks, and swiping a base. That’s not all.
O’Kelly also hurled a no-hitter for the Lady Warriors, picking up the win while striking out 7 hitters. O’Kelly gets her first Player of the Week award.
