EAST TEXAS – The Texas Sportswriters Association (TSWA) released its annual All-State list for softball on Sunday, July 11 and as the selections showed, these girls can play a little softball behind the pine curtain.
Players were selected by TSWA members based on nominations from coaches and media members from around the state.
Highlighting the list were a trio of Lovelady Lady Lions who helped lead the Lady Lions to a record of 32-3-1 and a berth in the Region III Finals where they fell to the West Sabine Lady Tigers.
