While the fast pitch softball season is over and done with, the postseason honors are just starting to roll in for the Piedmont Lady Wildcats.
Last Thursday, it was announced that Bre Davis (1st Base), Michelle Brandon (3rd Base), Logan Simunek (2nd Base), Jamie Lowrie (CF), Madison Morris (DP), and Kassidy Scott (Pitcher) were named to the Class 5A All-District First Team for the Lady Wildcats, with Courtney Anderson receiving honorable mention honors.
Then, on Tuesday afternoon, it was announced that Bre Davis and Jamie Lowrie were each named to the All-Region team first team, with Courtney Anderson earning second team All-region honors.
“This is just a credit to how hard all of these girls have worked this season,” Piedmont coach Rick Scott said. “They all have a great work ethic, and great families as well. We are so honored to celebrate their success this season, especially with it being our first season in Class 5A.”
For the season, Bre Davis finished with an average of .408, which included 40 hits and 44 RBI. She also hit 10 home runs this season for the Lady Wildcats along with an .877 slugging percentage, and has already committed to play for the University of Central Oklahoma.
“Getting all of these awards has been an awesome ending to my high school career,” Davis said. “I couldn’t have done this without the support from my team this season. All glory goes to God.”
Simunek also had a solid season for the Lady Wildcats, finishing with a .311 average to go with 23 hits and 14 RBI for the season. She also hit four home runs and had a slugging percentage of .581.
“I honestly didn’t expect to be picked for all-district, especially as a sophomore this season,” Simunek said about the award. “At the same time I didn’t think out of the whole district, I’d get selected. This just makes me want to get better so I can receive this honor again next season.”
Despite having to miss the final games of the regular season and the regional tournament due to an injury, Courtney Anderson still put together a strong senior season.
Anderson finished her final season as a Lady Wildcat with an average of .203 with 14 hits and eight RBI on the season to go with one home run.
“This is just such a blessing to me, especially since I wasn’t able to play at the end of the year,” Anderson said about being named All-District and All-Region. “I’m very thankful because this just shows how much hard work pays off, and I couldn’t have done any of this without my team.”
Junior Madison Morris turned in an average of .389 for the season, which included 37 hits and 24 RBI, along with four home runs this season for the Lady Wildcats.
“It’s quite an honor to be named All-District,” Morris said. “I couldn’t have done this without my team and the support from my coaches. I’ve just been practicing at my positions and doing anything I can to help the team. I’m looking forward to try and earning this again next year for senior year.”
Michelle Brandon led Piedmont with 11 home runs during the season, finishing with an average of .327, along with a .760 slugging percentage. She also had 43 RBI to go with 44 hits on the season.
Jamie Lowrie hit .480 in her senior season as a Lady Wildcat, along with a .630 slugging percentage and a .535 on base percentage as well. She finished with 48 hits this season.
Kassidy Scott led the Lady Wildcats with 57 hits this season, leading to an average of .496. She also collected an .834 slugging percentage on the season with seven home runs.
