Denham Springs High pitcher Allison Irby

Live Oak and Denham Springs High both made trips to the state playoffs, and both teams were well-represented on the District 4-5A all-district team.

Live Oak, which made a Cinderella run to the Class 5A semifinals at the state tournament in Sulphur, placed five players on the first team. Denham Springs, which lost in the opening round of the playoffs, placed four players on the first team, while Walker had one.

Pitcher Lindsey Rizzo, catcher Brett Leiva, infielders Gisselle Ash and BreAnna Corkern and outfielder Kelsey Miller are the Live Oak first-teamers.

Pitcher Allison Irby, infielder Bailey Hughes, outfielder Rayne Minor and utility player Karlie Galloway made the first team for Denham Springs.

Outfielder Madison D'Amico was the lone first-team selection for Walker.

Walker put four players on the second team — catcher Alayna Adams and infielders Shea Covington, Brooklyn Giovingo and Madison Monson.

Denham Springs and Live Oak each had two players on the second team.

Infielder Paige Luquette and outfielder Sarah Cambre were the Denham Springs selections, while infielder Kendall Theriot and outfielder Cameron Seals were second-teamers for Live Oak.

Natalie Parker, Jolie Smith, Karleigh Villneuve and Zoie Sedberry were honorable mention choices for Denham Springs. Lexi McCoy and Laynie Jones of Live Oak and Abby Andermann and Kailey Chachere of Walker were also honorable mention choices.
