Bina’s team is national runner-up

Danae Bina of Marion, who played her high school ball at Hillsboro, was named to the all-tournament team for the NCAA Division II college world series in softball.

Her team, Angelo State from San Angelo, Texas, set a school record by winning its first two games in the series, but lost 5-1 twice in title games to Minnesota State in Salem, Virginia.

Bina, a third baseman last year for Butler Community College, started all 67 games this season at shortstop as a junior for Angelo State. She recorded a .321 batting average and led the team with 32 stolen bases.

Her parents are Raymond and Denice Bina of Marion.
