After a 36-4 season that ended in the state tournament, Tuttle Softball was recognized with eight players for the All-District Team, and three honorable mentions. Tuttle senior Oakley Vickers was also selected as an All-State pitcher.
Tuttle Head Softball Coach Rebecca Cobb was voted the 4A-2 District Coach of the Year.
Tuttle sophomore Kynlee Swain was chosen as the District Player of the Year. Swain started the season as a center fielder and moved to third base about halfway through the season.
Vickers was the District Pitcher of the Year.
Audrey Watson was the All-District First Baseman.
Jazmyne “Bama” Moreno is the All-District Outfielder.
Layla Kerr is the All-District Catcher.
Avery Laird is an All-District Pitcher.
Skyler Rodgers and Lexie Sirman were both All-District Utility.
Bella Mejia, Lilly Ferrell, and Mikole Skaggs were Honorable Mention.
Vickers, Kerr, Sirman, and Moreno also made the All-Region team.
Coach Cobb had this to say about the 11 Lady Tigers recognized for their hard work this season, “We play a tougher schedule than most people in our district. Besides Tuttle, Cache is the next one in our district that plays a schedule similar to ours. I feel like that just gets them ready. You’ve got to go play the good teams to be good.”
Of those eleven, the Lady Tigers will return Ferrell, Laird, Rodgers, Mejia, Swain, and Watson.
Coach Cobb said of the seniors, “They were a good group of seniors when it comes to the leadership. They kept the drama down, they stayed positive, kept everybody in the right frame of mind, so they were a huge asset this year. Our group of seniors, they’ve all got bright futures. Two of them for sure are signing their National Letter of Intent tomorrow. I still have two or three that are wanting to go play college ball. They’re pursuing different colleges, trying to see if they can get their foot in the door. They’re all looking pretty bright.”
