HYDE — Clearfield Area High School senior standouts Rachel Hoffman and Megan Vanderburgh were named to the 2014 Mountain League All-Star Team in voting by the head coaches.

Hoffman was selected as a first-team outfielder while Vanderburgh was tabbed as a second-team infielder.

Hoffman patrolled center field when not pitching for the Lady Bison and pounded the ball at a dazzling .526 clip with 30 hits, wearing the collar in only two of their 20 games.

The University of Pitt-Johnstown recruit led the Lady Bison in all extra base hit categories with six doubles, six triples and five home runs to tie 2012 grad B.J. Bowman’s school record 18 career roundtrippers.

Hoffman’s 24 runs batted in and 18 runs scored also were team-highs.

Vanderburgh, a slick-fielding shortstop who has committed to play at Shenandoah (Va.) University, matched Hoffman’s 30 hits as she registered a dozen multi-hit games.

Vanderburgh was second in all other Lady Bison hitting stats with a .448 average, four doubles, two triples, two home runs and 14 RBIs. She was third in runs scored with 15.
