Two incoming DePauw University students have been named to the Kane County Chronicle All-Area Softball Team.

A pitcher, "Dierks was Geneva's steady workhorse this season, competing to a 13-6 record and striking out 115 batters. At the plate, Dierks provided plenty of pop with eight home runs and 32 RBI," the Chronicle notes.

Geary played second base and outfield for Geneva. "Named first team all conference, Geary provided another solid offensive boost to Geneva's lineup. Geary's .413 batting average was second only to Katie Keller, and she had 16 RBI," reports Jacob Bartelson. (Geary is seen in the photo at left)
