MS Softball Player of the Year: Ashley Alward, Skowhegan
Junior led Indians to 2nd straight Class A state title game.

,,,“Most of it for her this year was just being mentally stronger,” Skowhegan coach Lee Johnson said. “I don’t know if that comes with maturity or if it’s something else. She always had good stufff, but her mental toughness really took a big step. That was the biggest difference for her.”

Alward, a junior, was a perfect 8-0 in the regular season, compiling 100 strikeouts and allowing a total of just six earned runs across her eight starts in a wide open Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference. She only got stronger in the postseason, going 3-0 in the Class A North regional tournament, leading the Indians to their second straight regional title by surrendering only a single run on three hits in 19 innings of work. She racked up 26 strikeouts and a 0.32 ERA over that stretch.

She was named the KVAC Player of the Year. ... skowhegan/
