Senior shortstop Kelly Kraft of Brown City, Mich. (Brown City HS) is a first team honoree while sophomore third baseman Emily Adams of Hudsonville, Mich. (Hudsonville HS) was named to the third team.

While anchoring the left side of the infield with outstanding defense, Adams and Kraft also provided the offensive punch ranking one-two in hitting with nearly identical batting averages. Adams batted .327 (37/113) while Kraft hit at a .325 (37/114) clip. Kraft is an All-Region honoree for the second consecutive year.
