This season, New York Mills returned its entire starting lineup from last year's roster that claimed the program's first state title.
Fittingly, the Eagles' return trip to the state tournament was equally impressive. After running through the regular season with a 19-1 record, New York Mills went undefeated in the postseason to claim its second consecutive Class 1A title.
For their talent and leadership during the entire season, four Eagles earned all-state honors -- the most of any team. The honors are bestowed by the Minnesota Fastpitch Softball Coaches' Association following the state tournament.
Rhiana Roberts, Kenna Salo and Kaitlyn Kane received Class 1A first-team honors, while sophomore Tiffany Thompson was named to the honorable mention list.
All four athletes played major roles in the postseason as the Eagles pieced together eight consecutive wins.
Roberts was 6-for-12 at the plate and scored a team-high five runs, while Thompson hit a state tournament-best two home runs. Kane and Salo combined for seven RBI.
