After stellar seasons and runs deep into the playoffs, both Cedar Creek and Choudrant saw players earn spots on the Louisiana Softball Coaches Association (LSCA) all-state teams.

The Lady Cougars saw a trio of players earn all-state Class 1A honors in senior catcher Peyton Muse, senior shortstop Allie Fur and senior first baseman Lillian Soto.

Muse, Furr and Soto led Cedar Creek to a quarterfinal appearance in the Select School Division IV playoffs before falling 4-2 to Opelousas Catholic.

Sophomore catcher Zoey Smith was named to the Class B all-state team after helping guide the Lady Aggies to the Class 2B district title. Smith and Co. advanced to the state tournament, before falling in the bottom of the seventh inning to Converse.
