Following her standout junior season on the mound and at the plate, Portland junior Mac Fitzgerald has been named the 2019 Main Street Preps Sumner County Most Valuable Player.
Senior catcher Scarlet Shetters was selected to the Second Team, while senior Freed-Hardeman signee Anna Herrera earned Honorable Mention.
Fitzgerald, a Tennessee Tech commit, hit .489 with 64 base knocks, 51 RBI, eight home runs and a .511 on-base percentage. She also held a 2.90 ERA and struck out 67 batters in 127 innings pitched.
“Mac works hard not only during the season, but also in the offseason,” Portland coach Vanessa Tomlinson said. “She is one of the best batters that has played at PHS. Her knowledge of the game is phenomenal. Mac is also one of the best baserunners – she is super smart on the bases. We are proud of her accomplishments.”
Shetters had 23 hits, 11 RBI and caught 222.2 innings. Opponents managed just a .232 batting average when she was behind the plate.
Herrera, a versatile infielder, hit .243 and had 41 runs, 34 hits, 20 RBI and .325 on-base percentage. She also carried a .944 fielding percentage.
Portland went 17-19 this season and finished 4-8 in District 9-AAA play. The Lady Panthers saw their season end in a 5-0 loss to Station Camp in the district tournament May 8.
The All-Sumner County team is comprised of players from eight schools, including Beech, Gallatin, Hendersonville, Pope John Paul II, Portland, Station Camp, Westmoreland and White House.
