Channing Nobles was one of the key players to Yoakum's great season.

The Lady Bulldogs made a deep run into the playoffs, making it to the regional quarterfinals before bowing out to Lampasas.

"She was the catalyst of our team," said Yoakum coach Scott Mann. "She hit it well all season. She was the person we needed to get us over the top."

Her performance during the regular season earned her a spot on one of the two teams for the inaugural Victoria Chapter softball all-star game, which was held Saturday evening at the O'Connor Sports Complex.

And the Yoakum catcher did not disappoint, leading the blue team to a 15-3 rout of the white team. Nobles batted in five runs, including two on a home run as part of a seven-run fifth for the blue team.

"I didn't know it was going out," she said with a laugh after the game.

That offensive performance was about par for the course for the graduated senior, Mann said.

"She can hit it," he said. "I hate to lose her. I wish she was coming back."

The blue team featured players from the three Crossroads-area state champions - Shiner St. Paul, Shiner and St. Joseph - along with players from East Bernard and Yoakum, and was coached by St. Joseph's Craig Lauger and Rudy Diaz.

"The hardest part was getting everyone in while maintaining some semblance of a lineup," Lauger said. "It's fun coaching girls who have a real talent for the game."

The white team, coached by Calhoun's Daniel Castillo, featured players from Hallettsville, Hallettsville Sacred Heart, Louise, Yorktown, Calhoun, Tidehaven, Edna and Goliad.
