Trio of Panthers earn ‘Player of the Year’

Page County High School marked a milestone in its sports archives this week as three different Panthers in three different spring sports were named “Player of the Year” in the Bull Run District.

• Taylor Hankins — softball

• Lance Williams — baseball

• Jared Melini — boys’ soccer

“I do not remember a prior situation of this magnitude in the past 15 years honoring three athletes at this level,” PCHS Athletic Director Keith Cubbage stated in a email announcing the selections.

Senior Taylor Hankins has been a key part of the success the undefeated Panthers have seen on the softball field this year. While she’s also listed as a third baseman, Hankins has spent most of her time this season inside the circle for the Panthers. Among the team’s 13 wins, Hankins has recorded nine shutouts and held opponents to only five runs — while Page racked up 128.

Sophomore Lance Williams has lead the Panthers’ baseball team both at the plate and on the mound, as well as providing solid defense in the infield. Williams won first-team All-District honors as BOTH a pitcher and a shortstop.

Despite the Panthers’ 4-4-2 record in boys’ soccer and finishing among the middle of the pack in the Bull Run District this season, Jared Melini not only earned first team All-District honors at his position, but the senior forward was also chosen as the Bull Run District “Player of the Year.”
