St. Amant senior infielder Taylor Tidwell is one of the 10 parish softball players to watch in 2018.

With so many heralded players from last season returning in the parish in 2018, Ascension is bracing for another tremendous year in high-school softball.

Taylor Tidwell (St. Amant)

Taylor Tidwell is the highest-decorated of any returning Ascension player. She has started for St. Amant since her freshman season and is a three-time all-district selection and an LSU signee. In the Lady Gators’ run to the state tournament last year, she hit .393 with 10 home runs and 44 RBIs. She was all-district, All-Parish and All-State.
