The Iowa Girls Coaches Association chose 19 area softball players as part of its 2017 all-state selections. Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont leads the way among area schools with three first-team selections in Class 2A, and the IGCA named Rocket head coach Tony Fenton the Class 2A Coach of the Year. Albia, Fairfield and Oskaloosa also have three all-state selections (although not all are first-team picks). Ottumwa, Centerville and Sigourney have two all-state picks each, and Davis County has one all-state selection.
