West Hancock's Shelby Koehler set her own mark on the softball diamond throughout her star-studded career in Warsaw. The Emporia State commit now has a spot in the I-H-S-A record book.
Koehler sits in the softball record book in four offensive categories after this season. She blasted in four career grand slams which puts her in a tie for 1st place with five other players all-time. She hit two when she was a sophomore and two as a senior this season. She finishes her career with 32 home runs, which is tied for 17th all-time and is tied for 20th for most career walks with 85. Her final stats of her senior year, 12 homers, 56 RBI's and a batting average of .500. She was also 14-3 as a starting pitcher with a miniscule 1.87 ERA.
With number like those, you better believe Koehler was an All-Stater. She has some company from her own team there as well as Allison Dewald and Haleigh Hammel were named to the Coach Association Class 2A All-State team. Koehler was named to the second team after her monster numbers along with an on-base percentage of .629. Dewald named to the third team, not too bad of number from her either. She batted .440 with six home runs, six doubles and had 27 runs batted in. She also racked in 11 stolen bases. Miss Hammel took third team honors after batting .424 and knocking in 28 RBI's. She as well had 11 stolen bases on the year. A lot of speed on that West Hancock team as three girls, the three captains that is bring some all-state honors.
