CARMEL – Churubusco was represented at one of Indiana’s most elite softball games.

Churubusco’s Mallory Pearson competed at the Indiana Coaches of Girls Sports Association north-south all-star game June 17 in Carmel.

Pearson played on second and third base, and went 2 of 3 inside the batter’s box. Pearson fielded all three balls that came her way for a perfect fielder’s percentage.

“It was such a bittersweet time playing my last game,” said graduated Pearson. “But it was such an amazing experience as well. All the way from meeting new friends and hanging out with them, to playing against some of the best pitchers and defense in the state. I felt so incredibly honored and blessed to get the opportunity to play and represent Churubusco.”

Whitko’s Kennedy Krull also represented Whitley County at the all-star game. Krull also went 2 of three at bat.

The north all-stars defeated the south 9-8 in game one. The south all-stars beat the north 5-1 in the second game. The players played an average two innings per game.
