Cloer, Burleson, Byrd named all-conference

LEDGER – Mitchell High School athletes Marley Cloer, Courtney Burleson and Danica Byrd all earned All-Western Highlands Conference honors in their respective spring sports. 

Cloer and Burleson were key parts of a Mitchell High girls’ soccer team that rounded into form late in the season, winning two of its final three games to finish 3-13 overall. 

Cloer, a sophomore, led the team with 11 goals and chipped in a pair of assists and Burleson, one of just four seniors on the roster, provided leadership while appearing in all 16 games and scoring a goal. 

Byrd was the lone selection from the Mitchell softball team, which finished the season 2-16 overall under first-year head coach Kyle Lanning.
