Mary Star's Vitalich, POLA's Miranda & Short: Cal-Hi Sports All-State

Three of San Pedro's finest in prep softball were chosen to the 2014 Cal-Hi Sports All-State Softball team for all Small Schools on Monday.

Mary Star High softball junior pitcher Marina Vitalich, and the Port Of Los Angeles duo of junior pitcher Nicolle Miranda and senior shortstop Kelsea Short were all selected to that prestigious list.

For Vitalich and Miranda, it was the second year in a row they made All-State, and it's Short's first honor.

The George Mason-bound Vitalich, the 2014 San Pedro News Pilot Prep Softball Player Of The Year and All-CIF Southern Section Division VI selection, had a dominating junior season as she went 15-7 with a 0.64 ERA, striking out 321 batters (third in California) in 151 innings, issuing only 21 walks. Vitalich also had a .407 batting average with four home runs, 15 RBIs and 15 runs scored.

Vitalich threw seven no-hitters this past season, two of which were perfect games.

Miranda, the CIF-Los Angeles City Section Division I Pitcher Of The Year  and the 2014 San Pedro News Pilot Prep Softball Most Outstanding Player, paced POLA by going 19-6 in the circle with a 1.63 ERA and 202 strikeouts opposed to 18 walks in 146 2/3 innings pitched, while also hitting .402 with four home runs, 25 RBIs, 35 hits and 19 runs scored.

The Eastern Arizona-bound Short, an All-City Division I team selection, graduated from POLA as a three-time City Division III champion, and a four-time All-City selection. Short hit .385 with 4 home runs and 29 RBIs while also being solid defensively with 44 assists and 53 putouts, only committing 9 errors in 107 chances.
