California high school softball,Cal-Hi Sports Athlete of the WeekHarold Abend/ESPNHSKim Scarsella ranks as one of the top pitchers in Northern California.
The count is up to 350 players who are now on the board for our 2012 Cal-Hi Sports all-state squads.

Since the early 1980s, there have been Cal-Hi Sports all-state softball teams with many of the greatest players in the history of the sport among those who have been honored. The list includes Lisa Fernandez, Jennie Finch, Stacey Nuveman and Michelle Granger.
The next step toward selection of the various 2012 all-state teams is to release a second, updated list of nominees. The first list was posted nearly two weeks ago.
All 30 players on the all-state elite first team are written up. There also will be 30 more players chosen to the second team. On top of that, we’ll have our usual all-state teams for medium schools, small schools and underclass (non-seniors).
The list that follows can still be amended right up until the final choices are made. If a player is not included, don’t take it personally. You can send a nomination with each athlete’s, position, year in school, significant statistics.
Comparing a player not on the board yet to one who already is can be very important toward eventual selection. Limit each nomination to one page please. Send to: Mark.Tennis@espn.com or FAX (209) 463-1219 or call (209) 463-9050.
Here is the second, updated nomination list for the various 2012 all-state softball teams:

The UC Santa Barbara-bound catcher’s current battery mate, senior Arizona State-committed pitcher Alexis Cooper, as well as Nevada-bound outfielder Danielle Wiltz, were also equally deserving of being honored.

Now, after Moore joined Cooper, whom she’s caught since both were 9 years old, and Wiltz in leading Sheldon to the playoff championship, the delightful, well-spoken 3.6 GPA student-athlete has been named the final girls ESPNHS Cal-Hi Sports State Athlete of the Week for the 2011-2012 school year.
