Tates Creek standout Kendall Fields has been named Lexington’s Softball Player of the Year by the city’s coaches.
Fields, who’s signed to play at Ball State University in Indiana, edged Lafayette’s Maddie Burke for the top honor.
Lafayette finished with three first-team honorees. Freshman Carlee Jeter and eighth-grader Rylie Grantz were selected in addition to Burke, a senior.
Tates Creek senior Bree Whitson joined Fields on the first team. Paul Laurence Dunbar also had two first-team picks in Brooke Hill, a junior, and Abby Schweighardt, a senior.
