Playing in a competitive district that went down to the wire, Diboll, Central and Corrigan-Camden put up a softball season to remember for District 21-3A.
Thanks to those efforts, those teams took the bulk of the honors on the 21-3A All-District Team, which was recently announced.
Central’s Johnae Robinson and Corrigan-Camden’s Katy Burris led those honors as they shared Co-District MVP honors.
Burris was a standout pitcher and hitter for Corrigan-Camden, while Robinson brought a powerful bat to Central.
District champion Diboll, which had its best season in school history in advancing one round short of the state tournament, picked up its own share of honors with freshman pitcher Kayla Palomino being named the Freshman of the Year.
Diboll sophomore Hailey Fuentes was named the Utility Player of the Year.
In addition to those honors, Diboll earned the Coaching Staff of the Year. Hayland Hardy rounded out his first season as Diboll’s head coach in helping lead the staff to that honor.
Meanwhile, Central’s overall game was reflected in the individual awards with junior Lexi Windsor continuing to add to her impressive ledger as the Pitcher of the Year.
The honor comes a year after she was named the district MVP.
