When the 6B and 7B districts released their postseason softball awards Tuesday, four Copperheads made the cut.

Anaconda’s senior battery of Michaela Cortright and Hannah Schaefer earned All-State accolades while sophomore Erin Chapman and junior Sydnie Peterson found a slot on the Second Team.

Schaefer, a three-year starting catcher for the Copperheads, led the team in on base percentage (1.323) and in extra base hits with seven doubles, four triples and two HRs. She was second on the team in average at .429.

Cortright capped a four-year stint as a starting pitcher for the Copperheads. This year she posted an 8-3 overall record with a 3.47 ERA and 176 strikeouts in 105 innings. Offensively, Cortright hit .387 with four doubles, a triple and homerun.

In center, Chapman solidified the offense and defense as an underclassman. As a speedy left-handed leadoff, Chapman led the team in steals (19), was tied with Schaefer hitting .429 and in doubles (seven) and was second on the team in hits (30) and runs scored (28).

The final Copperhead on the list led the team in almost every offense category and became one of the best shortstops in the Western B. Batting second, Peterson led the team in average (.458), RBIs (34), hits (38), doubles (10) and was second in slugging (.590), OBP (1.121) and steals (13).
