The academic all-state softball team was released early last week, and six Marceline girls were eligible.

To earn a spot on the team, athletes must meet three of the following four criteria: they must start 70 percent of varsity games, be in the top quartile of their graduating class, have a 3.5 grade point average or higher, or have a 24 or greater on the ACT.

Marceline sophomores Kenzie Stahl, Abbey Kussman, and Savanna Kelly all appeared on the list. Junior Maycee Edgar joined them, as did seniors Madison Stahl and Darcy Dorrell.
