Dick receives Co-MVP honor in Watauga

from staff reports
  After having the kind of season some players can only wish for, Happy Valley senior Alicia Dick was named Co-Most Valuable Player this year on the All-Watauga Conference softball team.
  Dick, who shared the honor with Unicoi County's Natalie Lockner, posted a 9-4 record on the mound with an even more impressive 0.70 ERA in 110 innings. She also struck out 89 batters, and registered a batting over of .350.
  Also on the team for the conference co-champion Lady Warriors are Jessica Blevins, Mandy Byrd, Kortney Goulds and Terra Whaley.
  Elizabethton, a first-time sectional qualifer this year, placed three players on the squad -- Katie Hubbard, Kristie Keys and Jessica Robinson -- while Johnson County and Hampton both had two all-conference performers. Amanda Dowell and Kayla Lewis represent the Lady Longhorns, with Heather Chambers and Melissa Norris representing the Lady Bulldogs.
