Seitz, Thompson Snag All-Ohio Softball Honors

Posted on: June 8, 2016

A pair of Milford High School standouts who were among the top players in the Eastern Cincinnati Conference during the 2016 softball season have been recognized for their play with inclusion on the Ohio High School Fast Pitch Softball Coaches’ Association All-Ohio squads. Junior Kelsey Seitz was tabbed second team all-state for the second consecutive season, while classmate Valerie Thompson was a first team award winner, taking honorable mention honors. 

After bouncing back from missing the first several games from injury, Seitz exploded, earning her third consecutive first team All-ECC honor. In just 19 games, Seitz hit a robust .571 with a team-high 28 RBI. She also paced the club with five triples, adding eight doubles and eight stolen bases. In her first season at second base, Seitz totaled only two errors. 

In her season as a full-time pitcher, Thompson capped the campaign as the most dominant pitcher in the league, also earning first team all-league honors. The junior lefty posted a 19-3 record in the circle, including 10 shutouts, while holding a 1.01 ERA and limiting opponents to a .165 average. She also struck out 134. At the plate, Thompson hit .338 with four doubles and 22 RBI. 

Milford enjoyed another outstanding season in 2016, finishing 21-4 overall and becoming the first team in ECC Softball history to finish unbeaten in league play (14-0). During the year, the Eagles enjoyed a 16-game winning streak and capped the year outscoring their opponents by a 183-33 margin.
