The Woodville Lady Eagles softball team finished the season as district champions, bi district champions, area champions and reached the semi-finals of the AA regional tournament. Several Lady Eagles earned individual recognition for their great play. Junior Ashton Weatherford was recognized as the Offensive Most Valuable Player, while freshman Faith Sirmons won the honor for Defensive Most Valuable Player. Junior Morgan Poncho stood out as Pitcher of the Year and freshman Shelby Mixon earned the title of Newcomer of the Year. Coach Shawn Mixon was announced as Coach of the Year. Senior Tamra White earned a spot on the first team at shortstop, while junior Kenzie Magallon joined her at third base. Seniors Mallory Watts and Katie Watts finished out the first team selections as the designated player and in the outfield.

Three Lady Eagles found themselves named to the second team. Sophomores Mika Maxwell and Avery Tolar earned a spot at first base and second base. Junior Katie Crenshaw landed a spot in the outfield.

Woodville will have trouble replacing First Team All- District seniors Tamra White, Mallory Watts and Katie Watts, but with eight underclassmen on the All-District Team, the future is bright.
Last week junior Marqui Jackson was left off the boys All-District picks. Jackson was named Defensive player of the year.
