Cedar Creek junior slugger Sarah Adams, shown here hitting a home run in a playoff game, was named Class 1A All-State.

Chad Ashburn led Oak Grove on a dominant run to a Class 1A title. Blaire Bizette willed Catholic-Pointe Coupee back to the Division IV title game.

The duo received the top individual honors on the Louisiana Sports Writers Association’s Class 1A All-State teams for baseball and softball.

Ashburn went 8-3 on the mound with a 1.97 ERA and 86 strikeouts in 60.1 innings pitched. The MVP of the Class 1A final threw a nohitter against Grand Lake to seal Oak Grove’s first state championship since 2001.

Bizette, a Southeastern Louisiana University signee, was 16-4 with 142 strikeouts and a 1.29 ERA. She also batted .500, collecting 38 RBIs and 10 extra-base hits.

Cedar Creek is also represented on the Class 1A softball squad by slugger Sarah Adams. The junior was named to the infield as part of the All-State squad after hitting .500 this past season. The highlight of her year was a three-homer ballgame in the first round of the playoffs against St. Edmund in April. Teammate Riley Spradlin was named honorable mention on the team.

Oak Grove’s Ty Rollinson was named the baseball coach of the year. The Tigers won four combined playoff games by a score of 61-2.

Calvary Baptist’s Tiffany Wood received softball coach of the year honors after the Lady Cavs beat Catholic-PC for the Division IV title.
