Forsyth County head softball coaches named 22 players to the 2012 All-Forsyth County team.

The decision process wasn’t easy, as all five teams made it to the postseason for the first time in county history. Forsyth Central had three players make the list, while Lambert had four. North Forsyth, South Forsyth and West Forsyth led the way with five apiece.

Player of the Year — Meghan Rud, SS, South Forsyth, junior: .527 batting average, 16 RBI, 41 R, 22 BB, .623 OBP, 43 SB (set single season school record and holds career record)

"She means more to the team than she thinks, and that’s a good thing," South coach Ronnie Davis said. "She knows how to play the game with intensity, but can still have fun at the same time. Her play makes others around her better. ... I expect her to blossom into a full leader.

"We were trying to get her to 50 [steals], but there’s no need to steal when you’re up 10 or 15. She understood that and is a smart player. ... She’s a great student and person."

Pitcher of the Year — Kassie Howard, Lambert, junior: 10 wins, 1.89 ERA, 107 K, 13 CG; .317 batting average, .349 OBP

"She’s a wonderful individual," Lambert coach Dana Corr said. "She’s a quiet girl, but she leads by example. She does her job and is always encouraging people.

"She’s a coach’s dream. She can place the ball where she wants it. ... She’s made a name for herself. You know you’re up for a rough time at the plate if she’s pitching.  ... The best is yet to come."
