Montana Fouts, who led East Carter to three straight appearances in the Owensboro Health/KHSAA State Softball Tournament, was named Kentucky's 2018 Miss Softball by the Kentucky Softball Coaches Association on Sunday.

Fouts, a 6-foot-2 pitcher who's signed with the University of Alabama, started playing for East Carter when she was in sixth grade. She finished with 148 career wins — six more than the previous state record — and a career ERA of 0.32, the second-best in state history. Her 1,962 strikeouts are the most in state history.

Fouts, who also batted .502 for her career, led East Carter to its first Saturday appearance in the state tournament last weekend.

Softball is a single-class sport in Kentucky but the KSCA names All-State teams for three classes, using the KHSAA track-and-field alignment as its guide. You'll find all of those teams below.

Kennedy Sullivan, a two-time state-tournament MVP who was part of three state-title teams at Scott County, was named Class 3A Player of the Year. The WKU signee was 5-0 and finished with a 0.00 ERA in last week's state tournament.

East Jessamine star Hannah James, a Murray State signee, was named Class 2A Player of the Year. Green County's Hannah Judd won Class A Player of the Year.
