Ruston trio earns all-state honors

A pair of Ruston High baseballers and one Lady Bearcat softballer earned Louisiana Sports Writers Association (LSWA) Class 5A all-state honorable mention honors selected by a panel of sports writers across the state.

Bearcat pitcher Reid Williams and utility JR Tollett were both named to the all-state team after guiding the Bearcats to an impressive season that saw Ruston advance to the second round of the state playoffs.

Both players earned all-District 2-5A and Louisiana Baseball Coaches Association (LBCA) All-Region 2 honors already released this summer.

Ruston’s Carla Wilson earned honorable mention honors for the Lady Bearcats.
