Watauga High senior Riley Pudney was the only Pioneers on the 2013 Northwestern 3A/4A All-Conference Team. The Pioneers (6-12 overall; 2-10 NW3A/4A), who struggled this season, finished in sixth place and missed the state playoffs for the first time since 2009.
The Pioneers, despite their disappointing campaign, defeated South Caldwell 3-2 in the opening round of the conference tournament before they were eliminated by Fred T. Foard 3-1 in the tournament semifinals. An impressive showing by the Pioneers when you consider Lexi Shubert of the Tigers tossed a perfect game against them in a 14-0 loss on April 24.
Alexander Central, which won the regular-season title, the tournament championship and its eighth state title, led the way with seven all-conference selections; Fred T. Foard, the No.1 seed among the 3-A schools and the No.2 seed overall, had six all-conference selections.
