South Granville High, the N.C. High Athletic Association 2A state champion, leads the News & Observer All-Metro softball team.

The Vikings’ team batting average was .467, and sophomore pitcher Miranda Barker allowed less than one earned run per game. Barker is joined on the all-star team by teammates Erin Boone, who hit .598, shortstop Hunter Mundy, the championship series MVP, and freshman Megan White, who drove in 57 runs.

Pitchers dominate the team, just as they dominated the season. Eleven of the players selected pitched on a regular basis, but many were selected as much for their hitting prowess as their pitching.

The squad includes only four seniors.
