Harlson selected to all-state softball team
Kloey Harlson of Harrisburg capped off an outstanding freshman year of softball with her selection to the Class 4A all-state softball team. Harlson finished with a 22-5 record in the circle allowing 54 runs (20 earned) in 153 innings of work for a 1.18 ERA. She gave up 86 hits while walking 32 and striking out 287. Harlson was also a force at the plate as she batted .447 with a .457 on-base percentage and a .659 slugging percentage. She finished with 38 hits that included nine double, three triples and one home run. She had 43 RBIs and scored seven runs (had a courtesy runner most times). Harlson also earned all-conference honors. “Kloey is one of the most composed athletes I have ever coached. She is driven but poised, competitive but respectful...extremely focused on excellence. She handled herself extremely well on the mound to only be a freshman and was often times an offensive catalyst. Her future is extremely bright and I am excited to see where her ability takes her,” Harrisburg softball coach Chastan Carpino said.
