Two Madison High softball players chosen first-team all-state

Three other local players chosen to second team

Two senior girls softball players from the Madison Warhawks were chosen first-team Class 6 all-state, with three others from the local areas selected to the Virginia High School League’s second team.

Earning first-team honors were right-handed pitcher Ava Livingston and shortstop Sofia Marshall. The two helped Madison win the Concorde District and 6D North Region tournaments, win 20 straight games, finish 21-5 overall and reach the semifinals of the state tourney.

Livingston compiled a 17-4 record and had a 2.10 earned run average this past season. In 118 innings, she struck out 133 and opponents batted .175 against her. Livingston played through an injury the entire season and had just three at-bats, all coming during a game on senior night when she had two hits.

Marshall batted .476 with six home runs and 37 RBI. She had nine doubles, one triple and 40 hits. On the mound, Marshall had a 4-1 record with three saves. She will play in college at the University of Mary Washington.

Chosen second-team all-state were Langley Saxons’ senior third-baseman Charlotte Loving, Madison senior outfielder Ayla Condill and McLean Highlanders sophomore outfielder Genevieve Fagan, who also was this season’s  Player of the Year in both the Liberty District and 6D North Region.

Loving batted .412 with 33 hits and 28 RBI. She belted four home runs and had eight doubles. She only struck out six times, drew 14 walks and was hit by a pitch three times.

Loving was a four-year starter at Langley and never missed an inning or an at-bat during her high-school career. The two-year captain was a three-time first-team all-Liberty District player, and this spring was chosen first team all-region.

Condill, a leadoff batter, hit .458 with three doubles and two triples. She had 38 hits, 30 RBI and stole 16 bases.  

Fagan batted .630 with seven home runs and 30 RBI. She had three hits in McLean’s loss to undefeated and Division I private- school state champion and perennial Bishop O’Connell.

“She is getting better and better all the time,” McLean head coach Maurice Tawil said about Fagan.
