After upsetting Canton in the semifinals and nearly punching their ticket to the state playoffs, the Scotland County softball team was rewarded with a number of all-district honors after finishing second in the Class 1 District 11 Tournament.
Knox County claimed the district title with a 2-0 win over SCR-I and went on to beat Gallatin 12-2 to advance to the Elite Eight before falling to fellow Lewis & Clark Conference school Salisbury 1-0.
Five Lady Tigers were honored by the district coaches with post-season awards.

She recovered from a very slow start at the plate to finish the year with a .228 batting average.
