Lady Tigers place 10 on 18-3A all-district team

Montelongo defensive MVP, Keen coach of the year

Ten members of the Rockdale Lady Tiger softball team were named to the 18-3A All-District squad.

Senior Kayleigh Montelongo was selected as the most valuable defensive player.

Oddly, coaches chose Caldwell freshman Casey Kauder the overall most valuable player over Montelongo, despite the fact that the Lady Tigers defeated her and the Hornets twice.

Senior Marissa Mireles, juniors Alyssa Wallis and Amanda Boyd and sophomore Faith Talley were chosen for the first team.

Rockdale Coach Amanda Keen was named the coach of the year along with Caldwell’s Wendy Weiss. Rockdale and Caldwell tied for the district championship, while Rockdale won a playoff for first position in the playoffs.
