Livingston Parish turned in a strong presence on the 2018 All-District 4-5A softball team, with an even dozen players on the first team – six from league runnerup Live Oak and three apiece from Denham Springs High and Walker.

District champion Central’s two ringleader, Emily Danehower and Raegan Willis shared District MVP honors and Lady Wildcat leader Michelle Efferson is the Coach of the Year.

Live Oak softball head shots Breanna Corkern (2018)

Corkern

Lindsey Rizzo, Breanna Corkern and Brett Leiva led the way for the Eagles as repeat first-team picks. That trio was key as Live Oak fashioned a 5-3 record in league play. Senior Aubrey Rabalais and freshmen Emma Hunt and Katie Vandermark also landed first-team spots.

Denham wound up third in the district and was the only parish 5A team to log a playoff victory. Yellow Jacket sophomore Paige Luquette was tabbed a first-team selection on the infield, while juniors Rayne Minor -- another repeat first-teamer -- and Natalie Parker garnered spots in the outfield and utility, respectively.

Walker started off district play with wins over DSHS and Zachary but a six-game losing streak to end the season derailed the Lady Cats. Despite a 10-20 finish, senior Kassy Guidry grabbed a first-team nod on the infield, along with teammate Laynie Jones. Outfielder Savanah Stafford was tabbed a first-team outfielder.
