The Kingwood High School softball team filled the All-District 21-6A Team, it was announced on May 26. That should come as no surprise considering the Lady Mustangs won the district championship and were region quarterfinalists.
The Mustangs finished the 2017 season with a 32-6 record, including a 13-1 district slate and were ranked No. 11 in the state by MaxPreps, who also ranked the team No. 70 in the nation. It was the Lady Mustangs' second consecutive 32-win season.
Kingwood junior Maddie Lindsey was named the District 21-6A Pitcher of the Year, and Lauren Hendrix was named Coach of the Year.
Lindsey was a 20-game winner (20-3) and posted a miniscule 0.57 ERA for the season. She struck out 237 batters over 123 innings this season while walking just 67 and allowing only 51 hits.
Five Lady Mustangs earned first team all-district honors. That group includes seniors Jenna Bleiberg (.272, 2 HR, 28 RBI) and Brooke Johnson (.378, 4 HR, 27 RBI). In addition, juniors Lauren Kuhrt (.430, 39 R, 23 RBI)) and Amanda Cleaver (.304, 5 HR, 28 RBI) also earned their way to the first team along with sophomore Jourdyn Campbell (.330, 6 HR, 36 RBI, 11 SB).
Senior Madeline Meier led a group of four Kingwood standouts to the all-district second team. She is joined by juniors Jenika Lombrana and Alicia Deleon, along with freshman Ashley York.
Senior Maddy Johnson and junior Sydney Kuhrt were named to the all-district honorable mention.
