It was another very successful season for the Ascension Christian Lady Lion softball team as they made another trip to the postseason. As a result, eight Lady Lions made All-District 6-1A.

Ascension Christian made strides from last season as they won five more games.

The Lady Lions finished District 6-1A play with a solid 4-4 record and ended the regular season at 12-10 overall. This comparable resume earned them the No. 14 seeding in the Division IV playoffs.

In the postseason, they were forced to go on the road to face third-seeded Cedar Creek (19-11) in the opening round. Cedar Creek won the game and went on to capture the state championship.

There were three Lady Lions on the All-District 6-1A first team.

Layla Thompson made it from the infield after hitting .500 during the regular season, and Hallie Dupree made the first team as a catcher. Dupree hit a gaudy .529.

Finally, the first team was rounded out by pitcher Madison Gautreau. In addition to being their ace from the circle, Gautreau hit .428 from behind the plate.

Three Lady Lions made the second team in junior infielder Lauren Thompson, senior infielder Kaley Ryan and senior outfielder Emily Millet.

Two Ascension Christian players were honorable mention selections in Macee Chenevert and Mikala Oulman.
