Audrey Dodd, a McCracken County pitcher, was selected as the 22nd recipient of the Miss Softball award presented by the Kentucky Softball Coaches’ Association.

The organization also named its All-State teams on Sunday. Softball competition is not divided into classes, but the KSCA presents its awards based on a class system using the KHSAA’s current track-and-field alignment. Miss Softball is recognized from a statewide pool of players while three players of the year awards are given in each class.

Dodd, who’s signed with Georgetown College, is the first McCracken County player to be recognized with the honor. She is the second player from the 1st Region to win the award; Dana Smith, who played at Reidland, was named Miss Softball in 1999. McCracken County opened in 2013 after the consolidation of Heath, Lone Oak and Reidland.

Scott County, which on Saturday won its second state title in the last three seasons, had four players named to the Class 3A All-State team but none were first-team selections. Kennedy Sullivan, Hannah Davis and Halie Fain were each named to the second team, while Taylor Ricketts garnered honorable mention honors.

East Jessamine’s Hannah James, a sophomore pitcher, was named to the Class 2A first team and finished behind East Carter star Montana Fouts, also a sophomore, for Class 2A Player of the Year. Allison Schubert of East Jessamine also made the first team. The Jaguars’ Malin Miracle was named to the second team.

Anderson County’s Bailey Curry and Mia Aldridge were both named to the Class 3A All-State first team. Woodford County’s Caitlin Ferguson also was named to the first team in Class 3A; Yellow Jackets pitcher Bethany Todd received a second-team selection.

Clark County’s Megan Terrell (second team) and Madison Norton (honorable mention) received Class 3A All-State recognition, as did Madison Central’s Morgan Elliston (second team) and Emily Frakes (honorable mention).
