GC Softball: Frost's Moore, Schwartz named 12-1A Co-MVPs

Scott named Newcomer, 3 other players named to first-team

Corsicana — Frost's Lady Polar Bears dominated the District 12-1A softball race, winning the title with only one loss, and when it came time to pick the All-District softball team, the Frost girls dominated again.

Frost ace Jae Moore and Frost catcher Hillaree Schwartz, who make up one of the best batteries in this part of Texas, were named the district’s Co-MVPs — and they are only sophomores.

In fact, Frost has one of the youngest softball teams in the state and many of those underclassmen were honored on the 12-1A All-District team, including freshman Karlie Scott, who as named the district's Newcomer of the Year.

Not only did Frost players win three superlative awards, but the Lady Polar Bears had three players named to the first-team, and one more named to the second team as seven starters received district post-season honors.

Moore and Schwartz led the way for the district and area champs who lost just twice, going 16-2 and producing the best season in Frost history. Schwartz ran on all three of Frost's relay teams that made it to the state meet in Austin, and Moore ran on one of the relays as they both managed to have amazing springs, juggling two sports at the same time.

Moore went 16-2 on the mound with a 0.30 ERA. She struck out 135 batters in 94 innings and allowed only four earned runs all year, holding opponents to a .117 batting average with a remarkable 0.64 WHIP (walks, hits per inning).

Moore also had a big year at the plate, hitting .508 with six doubles, a triple and 22 RBI's in 18 games, and she also earn honors on the All-District Academic team as well.

Schwartz was not only a brick wall behind the plate, but she has a gun for an arm and threw out almost everyone who tried to steal, allowing only six stolen bases all year.

She was a monster at the plate, hitting .534 with five doubles, six triples and a homer. She drove in 31 runs in 18 games and had an .879 slugging average.

Scott hit .410 while playing stellar at shortstop as a freshman. She hit for average and power with 10 doubles and a home run, and drove in 24 runs while scoring with 31.

Kaycee Bowling, a sophomore second baseman who scored 32 runs while batting .400, was named to the first team along with freshman center fielder Kennah Kennedy, who hit .400, and sophomore Madison Revill, who was also named to the All-District Academic team.

Cheyenne Parks, a sophomore outfielder, was named to the second team.

Frost's Jennifer Andrews and Sarah Woods were on the district's honorable mention list.

    It's here.
    When the sun comes up Monday morning it's not just the dawn of a new day, but the dawn of a new season — it's the beginning of two-a-days.
    Eight of the nine schools in the Golden Circle will begin football practice Monday while Corsicana waits until Aug. 8 to start. The Tigers begin a week later because they held spring practice.
    For last year's playoff teams such as Mildred, Blooming Grove, Kerens, Frost and Hubbard Monday begins a road back to the postseason and for everyone else its the start of a new march. For everyone, it's the most optimistic day of the year.

  • RON MORGAN.jpg Morgan: ESPN was wrong in suspending Smith

    I won’t be watching ESPN this coming week. For a network that has been made into an empire by covering baseballs, footballs, basketballs, golf balls, soccer balls, tennis balls (I’ve never watched hockey, but I understand they have no balls), this network is much like hockey. They lack the things they are covering.
