This year’s My Horry News All-County Baseball and Softball Teams are loaded at every position, particularly the standouts who were named the Pitchers and Players of the Year.

Myrtle Beach’s Luke Edwards, who has signed to play on the next level at Marshall University, claimed Player of the Year after batting .423 as the Seahawks’ senior shortstop.

On the softball side. Lady Seahawks graduate Carly Grace Bodge was named Pitcher of the Year after posting a 17-5 record and a 1.20 ERA to lead Myrtle Beach to a region title.

Aynor rising senior Layna Johnson, the lone underclassman among the top award winners, claimed Player of the Year after batting .451 and helping the Lady Blue Jackets to region and district titles.
