As a kid, one of my favorite hobbies was collecting baseball cards.

I still have a 5-gallon storage tub filled with what I have amassed over the years, along with a special notebook for those select cards that I thought would one day make me a millionaire.

This year’s collection of All-T&D Region baseball and softball honors were not only the best in the region, but some of the best in the state.

Clarendon Hall’s Mandy Wells (.673) and Orangeburg Prep’s Forrest Sutcliff (.567) each led SCISA in batting average this season. Calhoun Academy’s Matt Layton led SCISA with nine wins on the mound and 82 strikeouts.

2021 T&D All-Region Football Team: Bias All-Region Player of the Year

Many of the names on these lists will be continuing their careers at the collegiate level, including Bamberg-Ehrhardt shortstop Amanda Ahlin, who has signed with the University of Tennessee.

Ahlin helped lead the Lady Red Raiders to their first-ever Class A state softball championship. The T&D Region also had champions in SCISA Class A softball (Clarendon Hall) and baseball (Andrew Jackson Academy).
