CLAREMORE — Claremore High School senior outfielder Madison Bright capped off a successful four-year career with first-team Tulsa World All-Metro Softball honors.

Bright, who signed a national letter of intent with Iowa State in November, was the lone Lady Zebra standout on the first team. The future Cyclone outfielder batted .412 with 40 runs scored, 19 stolen bases and 19 walks for the Class 5A state semifinalist Claremore Lady Zebras this season.

Claremore senior pitcher Ally Johnson also earned second-team Tulsa World All-Metro Softball recognition after a strong showing in the Class 5A State Playoffs.

Johnson gutted out a pair of heart-wrenching victories over McAlester in the regional championship and then notched an impressive win over Duncan in the 5A state quarterfinals.

Also earning honorable mention Tulsa World All-Metro Softball honors for Claremore were senior second baseman Stephanie Schivally and senior shortstop Sarah Brown.

Schivally’s solo homer in the Class 5A state semifinals against Edmond Deer Creek was the lone run for the Lady Zebras.

Brown also contributed with timely hits throughout the state playoffs, including a pair of clutch at-bats in the regionals against McAlester.
