The two ladies make for a truly lethal pitching combination that gives Tarver the luxury of a true change of pace when necessary in a game situation.
2. Bethany Allen: The last name "Allen" is quickly developing a lore within Mineral Wells baseball and softball circles thanks to three stickball-playing siblings who are in a class of their own. The only girl of the trio, Bethany, has already cemented her legacy with a phenomenal senior season.
The Weatherford College signee saw some time at catcher this season to periodically spell starter Hope Patterson, but she is a natural in her regular duty as shortstop.
She's like a vacuum between second and third base, accruing a .952 fielding percentage in 2014, including 96 putouts, 42 assists and two double plays.
She's also a vital game-changer on offense, leading off the Lady Rams' batting order.
With a staggering .585 batting average, Allen has totaled 62 hits, 13 doubles, eight triples, 27 RBIs and only one strikeout.
Her speed also makes her dangerous on the base paths. It's rare that Allen does not find her way home somehow once she's on base, scoring 64 runs as a result in 2014.
If the Lady Rams are to make a run at state, Allen will be key.
3. Hitting: If solid pitching doesn't float your boat, the Lady Rams can also hit with the best of them. When these girls are hot, they are dangerous at every spot in the lineup.
The top is particularly strong, with Allen leading off followed by left fielder Victoria Huffman. Huffman is essentially the Rams' version of Shin-Soo Choo, posting a .461 on-base percentage and drawing walks like nobody's business.
Once both of those girls are on base, and they often are, Hope Patterson steps up to the plate, bringing her team second-best .560 batting average and team-best .868 slugging percentage.
