Kilgore College’s Hannah Grumbles earned first team honors and Marissa Medina was a second team pick with the release of the Region XIV Conference East Zone All-Conference softball team.

Grumbles, a sophomore catcher, was named to the first team, while Medina, a sophomore outfielder, was a second team selection.

Grumbles hit .378 for the Rangers with eight home runs, five doubles, two triples, 27 RBI and 24 runs scored. Medina was a .348 hitter with three home runs, eight doubles, two triples, 15 RBI, 39 runs scored and 34 stolen bases in 37 attempts.

Grumbles and Medina helped coach Trish Robinson’s Rangers beat Northeast Texas Community College in a game to get into the conference tournament, at the University of Texas at Tyler, but KC lost their first two games of the double-elimination tournament to Trinity Valley and to Navarro. KC finished with an 14-28-1 record.

Player of the Year honors went to Bossier Paris teammate’s Uchenna Jon Loy and Tuli Sosi. Bossier Parish’s Primrose Aholelei was the Pitcher of the Year.
