AUGUSTA — Karli Theberge of Hermon High School has been named Miss Maine Softball.

Theberge is the first recipient from Hermon. She was among nine finalists for the award, which was announced between the Class C/D and Class A/B senior all-star games Thursday night at Cony High School’s Family Field.

The Maine Softball Coaches Association presents the award annually to the top senior softball player in the state.

Theberge, a left-handed pitcher, led Hermon to a 17-1 record and the Class B North semifinals, where it lost to Old Town, the eventual state champion. She batted .623 and led her team with 17 extra base hits during the regular season.

The other finalists were: Aly LeBlanc of Madison; Kirsten Pelletier of Messalonskee; Emily Gilmore of Bangor; Kirsten Lebreux and Erin Martin of Biddeford; Jen Jones of Sanford; Maggie Murphy of Scarborough; and Stephanie Rundlett of York.

Lebreux received the MSCA’s $500 scholarship.
