Female Athlete of the Week: Tara Baney

State College - Centre Daily TimesJune 1, 2014 

Bellefonte High School softball player Tara Baney is the Centre Daily Times Female Athlete of the Week.

Baney pitched the Lady Red Raiders to the District 6 Class AAA title with a 7-2 triumph against Johnstown last Wednesday.

Baney, a freshman righ-hander, allowed just one hit through the first five innings as second-seeded Bellefonte built a commanding lead against the top-seeded Lady Trojans. Baney finished with a four-hitter, with no walks and five strikeouts as Bellefonte won its 13th district crown in the last 15 seasons. Baney improved to 2-0 in the postseason.

The Lady Raiders will face District 7 champion Thomas Jefferson at 4 p.m. Monday at Baldwin High School in a PIAA Class AAA playoff opener.
