Carson High’s Kedre Luschar (1) looks to turn a double play against McQueen during regional play this spring. Luschar, who was named Offensive Player of the Year in Class 5A, recorded the first out at second off an assist from Shannen von Duering (26), who was awarded a second-team slot on the all region teams.

Kedre Luschar’s highly touted high school softball career came to an end with the Oregon softball signee picking up Offensive Player of the Year in Class 5A in Northern Nevada.
Luschar hit .594 on the year and homered in eight of her final nine games in her nine games.
The five-tool shortstop posted ridiculous numbers in her three-year career with the Senators.
In 82 career games, Luschar registered at least one hit in 74 of them – clobbering 17 home runs, 19 triples, 13 doubles and 101 RBIs.
She ends her tenure with Carson as a career .512 hitter (144/281) with 46 multi-hit games. She struck out 31 times in three years.
Carson’s pitcher Caydee Farnworth earned a first team all-region nod, as did Corine Doran at the utility slot.
In 92 innings of work, Farnworth had a 3.12 ERA with 144 strikeouts along with 55 walks.
She was almost as deadly at the plate, hitting .414 with 16 RBIs, six doubles and a homer.
Doran, Farnworth’s catcher, hit a team-best .604 batting average with 21 RBIs, 10 doubles and three balls hit over the fence.
Second baseman Shannen von Duering was awarded second team all-region consideration after hitting .411 in her junior season.
The middle infielder typically hit out of the No. 2 spot in the lineup and drove in 14 RBIs with six doubles.
Taylor Murphy finished off the Senator all-region selections, earning an honorable mention slot.
Murphy hit .292 in her final season in royal blue and white with six RBIs, three doubles and triple.
