It would be expected that outscoring district opponents 229-10 in 16 games and winning 11 by shutout would impress the other coaches, and that bore itself out with the state champion Angleton Ladycats.
Ten Ladycats earned spots on the All-District 24-5A team voted on recently by district coaches, including league most valuable player Aaliyah Garcia. The Georgia Southern commit was a dual threat, hitting .447 on the season while putting up a 1.39 ERA in the circle.
Angleton shortstop Danieca Coffey earned defensive player of the year recognition, and Cindy Rubio was named coach of the year for guiding the Ladycats to a 16-0 mark in district.
Coaches also picked Foster’s Ciara Mata as offensive player of the year; her teammate, Amanda Allen, as pitcher of the year; and Terry’s Giselle Villarreal as newcomer of the year.
Ladycats Mia Scott, Haylie Savage and Ellie Grill were named to the district first team. Joining them were Manvel’s Addison Greak, Brianna Garcia, Riley Bennett and Nicole Blaise; Alvin Shadow Creek’s Zara Bennett, Aniyah Burns and Jillian Gutierrez; Foster’s Alyssa Muceus, Shelby Showers, Kylie Neel and Sierra Toman; Terry’s Brandi Juarez and Ashleigh Rodriguez; and Lamar Consolidated’s Shenita Tucker.
Second team honorees were Angleton’s Mika Hinojosa, Raegan Kotrla, Teagan Whitley, Avery Farr and Angel Jasso; Terry’s Alex Howard, Lainey Holt; Lamar Consolidated’s Kayla King and Malerie Badillo; Foster’s Kylie Stamper, Alexis Morin and Leea Dempsey; Manvel’s Karissa Schnieder, Haley Ratcliff and Brittany Hood; and Shadow Creek’s Ahmeera Bennett.
