Hudson sophomore pitcher Jordan Little has been honored by the Wisconsin Fastpitch Softball Coaches Association by being named to the WFSCA All-Northwest District First Team.

Previously Little and her sister, Kendra Little, were both named to the 2014 All-Big Rivers Conference First Team while senior Cheyanne Massie, junior Savannah Kelley and sophomore Emma Steiner received Honorable Mention.

“They all deserve it,” Raider coach Jim Revoir said about the postseason honors. “We had a little bit of a rebuilding year with a young team but this shows the quality of the kids we have. With two on the first team and three honorable mention, and to not finish that high in the standings, it shows how hard they all worked and they deserve it.”

Jordan Little is one of just eight BRC players named to the 24-player All-Northwest District First Team. The sophomore compiled a record of 4-3 with a miniscule 1.60 earned run average in the circle this season. She struck out 55 batters in 42 innings pitched.

“Sometimes you forget she was just a sophomore,” Revoir said. “If it wasn’t for the errors behind her she probably would have gone 7-0.”

Little was also one of the Raiders’ top hitters this season with a .422 batting average, three home runs and 13 runs batted in.

“She’s probably the best shortstop in the conference,” Revoir said. “She led off the first part of the season because she is such a patient hitter. Then we were pleasantly surprised when Cheyanne Massie stepped in and did a good job leading off and we were able to move Jordan to number three.”

Hudson finished the season with a record of 8-10 overall, 5-7 in the BRC.
