GC Softball: Kilcrease, Haynes lead Kerens on 19-1A All-district team

Three other LadyCats — Taylor Ames, Hannah Hall and Bailey Wade — were named to the second team.

Kilcrease, who is an All-Golden Circle volleyball player and also plays basketball, led the way after having a monster season at the plate, where she batted .800 with two home runs, nine doubles and 24 RBI's. She also stole 13 bases and had a 1.000 percent fielding average in the outfield.

Ames, a three-time Golden Circle Player of the Year in basketball, made the second team at shortstop. She hit .562 and was 7-for-7 in stolen bases. Wade played second base and hit .533 as the middle of the infield came through all season for Kerens.

Hannah Hall, who won the state title in powerlifting, was the anchor for Kerens as the team's catcher. She made the second team after batting .430 for the season.
