Junior Taylor Tidwell returns as one of the most heralded players in the state. The LSU commit has been a starter since her freshman year. In 2016, Tidwell was a terror from the plate as she hit .504 with 10 home runs and 49 RBIs. As a result of her stellar play, the infielder was named first-team all-district, All-Parish and All-State
