Hebert, Vincent lead MCHS softball all-state selections

Morgan City High School’s state runner-up finish on the softball diamond was followed by multi players earning recognition on the Louisiana Sports Writers Association Class 4A All-State team.
The Lady Tigers had two first-team selections — senior pitcher Kennedy Hebert and senior utility pick Allie Vincent — and two honorable mention picks — freshman shortstop Haylie Crappell and junior third baseman Gracie Verrett.
Hebert, who earlier this summer was selected as the Gatorade Louisiana Softball Player of the Year, finished the season with a 25-5 mark and a 1.37 ERA. In 184 innings, she surrendered 59 runs (36 earned) on 105 hits with 86 walks and 268 strikeouts.
Offensively, the Nicholls State signee hit .591 with 16 doubles, seven triples, six home runs and 58 RBIs. She scored 37 runs, had a .646 on-base percentage and a 1.108 slugging percentage.
Vincent batted .505 this season. She had 45 hits, including one double, one triple, 10 RBIs and 49 runs. Vincent recorded a .574 on-base percentage and a .538 slugging percentage.
Crappell batted .386 this season with seven doubles, one triple and 34 RBIs. She scored 27 runs and had a .466 on-base percentage and a .489 slugging percentage.
Verrett batted .348 this season with five doubles, four triples and four home runs. She had 29 RBIs, scored 28 runs, had a .388 on-base percentage and a .620 slugging percentage.
Attempts to reach the quartet’s former high school coach, Tamara Keller, were unsuccessful.
The Class 4A Most Valuable Plyer award went to infielder Annemarie Peavy of Division II state champion Parkview Baptist, while Todd Schulz of Class 4A state champion DeRidder was named 4A Coach of the Year.
Other competitors from District 7-4A, which Morgan City competes in, who received honorable mention all-state recognition were: Assumption’s Abbey Aysen, Mattie Boudreaux, Alexis Clifton and Emily John; and E.D. White’s Scout Blades and Maddie Gros.
