The Alabama Sports Writers Association announced its all-state softball teams and local student-athletes were among the honorees.
The two-time state champion Orange Beach Makos earned six selections on the Class 2A team, Baldwin County High had two athletes recognized and Robertsdale had a second-team representative on the Class 6A team. On the Class 7A team, four Fairhope Pirates and two Daphne Trojans were selected.
For Orange Beach, the 2A state championship MVP KG Favors was joined by pitcher Justine Henderson and designated hitter Ava Hodo on the first-team all-state and Daigle Wilson on the second-team all-state. Outfielder Krystin Kennell and DH Teagan Revette were named all-state honorable mentions.
Pitchers Chelisa Newsome (Robertsdale) and Madilyn Byrd (Baldwin County) were both named to the 6A second-team all-state. Baldwin County catcher Emma Weatherford was an all-state honorable mention.
On the 7A stage, pitcher Alea Johnson (Fairhope) and DH Abby Johnson (Daphne) both landed on the first-team all-state. Fairhope's Ryley Harrison (pitcher), Hailey Michew (catcher) and Bailey Wiggins (outfielder) were all second-team all-state selections and Daphne's Jasmine Rogers (DH) was an all-state honorable mention. Daphne's Johnson was also the lone eighth-grader on the 7A all-state team.
Of the five teams with all-state honorees, Daphne was the lone squad not to make the state tournament although it compiled a 45-14 overall record and fell to Fairhope and eventually Prattville in the regional round.
