The Neosho Lady Wildcats finished with three selections when the Central Ozark Conference Large officially released its all-conference honors on the heels of Webb City’s state quarterfinal loss Saturday. Webb City was the last COC Large team standing.

Neosho senior outfielder Tori Frazier earned unanimous first team and that fits right alongside her unanimous all-district selection in Class 4, District 12. It turned out to be a season for unanimity in the COC Large, since Frazier was one of eight unanimous selections, joined by Republic’s Ally Stolte, Republic’s Kaitlin Ragsdale, Webb City’s Mareika Turpen, Webb City’s Addie Darby, Ozark’s Nya Morgan, Nixa’s Morgan Jones, and Branson’s Gracie Yaeger.

Only juniors Morgan and Jones and freshman Ragsdale were not seniors.

Frazier earned her spot because of her speed and spark at the top of the Neosho lineup and for her defense in center field.

After Neosho’s 9-4 loss to Webb City for the district title, Neosho head coach Catie Cummins talked about her four seniors and started with Frazier.

“Tori Frazier, our center fielder, has just been one of the most level-headed kids that I’ve been around,” Cummins said. “I’m young in experience and years, but she just gets it. She gets it and we’re going to miss her a lot with her leadership. She’s not the most vocal person, but she’s always doing the right thing and encouraging her teammates. She can go catch any fly ball hit at her and that’s real important, and she’s solid in the leadoff.”

Junior catcher Taylor Baker and sophomore third baseman Mikayla Long — key bats in the Neosho lineup — earned honorable mention. Long and Baker and the rest of the returning Lady Wildcats hope to build on their 11-1 wins over both Joplin and Republic in the district tournament.

Webb City led with seven all-conference selections.
