Katie Gardner, a Warren East standout who will try to lead the Raiders to a state title next weekend, was named 2019 Kentucky Miss Softball on Sunday.

Gardner, a senior, has a 0.74 ERA for the season. She has thrown 171 1/3 innings this season and allowed just 18 earned runs. Gardner has struck out 321 batters for the Raiders, who are 34-2 heading into the KHSAA State Softball Tournament, which was rescheduled to start Friday because of rain.

The 2019 All-State teams were also announced Sunday. The Kentucky Softball Coaches Association divides the teams into classes based on the KHSAA alignments for track and field, and it names a player of the year in each class. The winners this year were: Maddie Gailor, Louisville Holy Cross (Class A); Katy Grace Chadwell, Boyle County (Class 2A); and Jasmine Miller, Male (Class 3A).

The 11th Region had two players named first-team Class 3A: Woodford County’s Delaney Enlow and Scott County’s Carly Oliver. Lexington Christian Academy’s Elise Shewmaker was named first-team Class A.

Louisville Holy Cross (Class A), Warren East (Class 2A) and Male (Class 3A) were recognized for Coaching Staff of the Year in their respective designations.
