Harrisburg’s Jehlain Wright earned a spot on the Class 4A all-state softball team after helping her team to a 22-5 record. Despite an injury in the district tournament that ended her season, Wright hit .483 with 29 runs scored and 24 RBIs. Wright had 28 hits on the season including six doubles, a triple and a home run. She finished with a .573 on-base percentage and a .667 slugging percentage. Wright was also an all-conference selection. “Jehlian, unfortunately had a season ending injury that cut her junior season short. Despite this, she was still an integral part of the team. I consider her to be the cornerstone of our defense and offense, and a leader by example. I look forward to getting her healthy and back in action,” Harrisburg head softball coach Chastan Carpino said about Wright.
