Just because the spring sports prep seasons have been done for a few weeks does not mean accolades are not continuing to roll in.
Benson Bobcats softball players, junior slugger Emily Darwin and senior graduate Katie Sherman received Honorable Mentions for the Arizona Republic’s 2019 All-Arizona softball team.
Additionally, Bobcats’ golfer Tyler Smith was named to the Tucson All Sports Division III Golf All Stars First Team. Smith shot a low 38 in the last meet of the season and narrowly missed qualifying for the state golf tournament by two places.
It was a solid season for the Bobcats on the links, coach James Howe acknowledged.
“I’m pleased with the successes the team had this year... we finished fifth out eighth in our section, our best finish yet, and all our golfers made great improvements in their scores,” said Howe.
