ROCHELLE — On Wednesday, recent graduate and former Lady Hub Christina Williams paid a visit to Rochelle Township High School with her mother to pick up one more award before moving on to Kishwaukee Community College.

As Williams found out on Wednesday, her name will go down as one of the best softball players in RTHS history after receiving 2013 Illinois Coaches Association All-State Selection Second Team honors.

“In all of my years with the program, as both assistant and head coach, I do not remember a single girl to receive such a prestigious honor,” said RTHS varsity softball head coach Adrian Smith. “I have been through our records and as far as I can tell, Christina is the only girl to receive such an award.”

Williams, who has played shortstop on the varsity squad for the past three seasons, led the Lady Hubs in batting and was second in fielding this season.
