Tuesday East Columbus’ Karli Godwin was named to the 25-player High School OT (HSOT) Softball All-State first team. Godwin is a rising senior at ECHS.

Godwin’s offensive totals during the 2022 season were remarkable. In 25 games, the Oklahoma State commit had a batting average of  .733 with 55 hits, 53 RBIs, 15 doubles, 4 triples, 18 home runs, 57 runs scored, 29 walks and 11 stolen bases. Godwin did not strike out during the 2022 season.

South Columbus senior pitcher, Peyton Duncan, was named to the third team. Duncan, who will play for Presbyterian, had a 0.63 ERA, 197 strikeouts in 111.2 innings, and a .115 batting average against. Duncan was an honorable mention selection in 2021.

Trask senior shortstop Madalyn White earned honorable mention recognition. White will attend Francis Marion in the fall.

The HSOT All-State teams come from across all classifications of public and private high school softball in North Carolina.

There are 25 players on each of the first, second, and third teams. Each team has a requirement of  two catchers, eight infielders, four outfielders, and seven pitchers. There are four additional spots on each team, allowing more players of one of these positions to make the team. There are also 50 honorable mention spots that have no position requirements.

The HighSchoolOT All-State teams seek input not only from coaches and our own staff but also media members across the state. This is the second year HSOT has named an All-State softball team.
