The mantle is filling up quickly for East Rutherford pitcher Savannah Davis.

On Sunday, Davis was named 2A Pitcher of the Year for western North Carolina by the North Carolina Softball Coaches Association (NCSCA).

Davis, a sophomore, led the Lady Cavaliers on a dream season ending in a state championship. She went 27-4 with 10 shutouts and 270 strikeouts in 2014 en route to MVP honors at the state championship.

Fellow Lady Cavalier Raven Gray joined Davis on the list. The senior shortstop had another season with a batting average over .500 to follow-up on a junior season that garnered her 2A Player of the Year from the NCSCA.

Five Chase Lady Trojans landed on the list that included over 120 players from 2A schools across the state. Dakota Reid, Devyn Gowan, Ashley Brown, Bekah Hopkins and Maggie Robbins each represent Chase on the list.

R-S Central added two players with senior pitcher Makayla Crain and junior catcher Makayla Crawford earning all-state honors.

Forbush's Taylor Wooten was named 2A Player of the Year fro western North Carolina while North Johnston's Jamielynn Johnson and West Bladen's Nicole Wyatt were named 2A Player of the Year and 2A Pitcher of the Year, respectively, from the eastern portion of the state.

Thomas Jefferson continued its historic season with its first all-state recognition — sophomore pitcher Brianna Kale.

Kale led the Lady Gryphons to the playoffs for the first time in program history with a 5.37 ERA and an astounding 154 strikeouts.
