By Will Johnson
EAST TEXAS – The softball season came to an end in the Regional Finals Round for the Lovelady Lady Lions following their defeat at the hands of the West Sabine Lady Tigers, 2-1 and 6-5. As a result, All-District teams for District 21-2A have been released.
In the 2021 season, District 21-2A was comprised of: the Alto Lady Yellow Jackets; the Cushing Lady Kats; the Douglass Lady Indians; the Groveton Lady Indians; the Lovelady Lady Lions; the Apple Springs Lady Eagles; the Kennard Lady Tigers; and the Wells Lady Pirates.
Given the Lady Lions finished the year with a record of 33-5-1 and the team that knocked them out of the postseason is ranked #1, it should come as no surprise the Superlatives, First and Second Teams were dominated by the Lovelady squad. In fact, every starter received postseason recognition.
