With another great softball season in the books, the Weekly Citizen has unveiled its All-Parish team.

In 2019, five of the six Ascension Parish high schools reached the playoffs.

The team that had the most success was St. Amant. The Lady Gators brought home another District 5-5A title and then won the program its first state championship since 2006. Overall, they finished with a 28-2-1 record.

Ascension Catholic won another District 6-1A crown. They then reached the state quarterfinals for a seventh straight season. There, they fell short against eventual state champion Catholic of Pointe Coupee. They finished with an 18-15 record.

Dutchtown went 20-10 during the regular season and earned a first-round home playoff game, but they were upset by Sulphur.

Ascension Christian went 19-6 during the regular season and finished as the District 6-1A runner-up. They hosted a playoff game for only the second time in the program's history, but they were upset by Sacred Heart in the opening round.

East Ascension finished the regular season with a 12-12 record and finished as the District 5-5A runner-up. They reached the postseason, but they were beaten by eventual state semifinalist Walker in the opening round.
