Hagan Goldey and Jessica Speake of 12th Region champion Garrard County were named to the all-state first team by the Kentucky Softball Coaches Association.
The two Garrard girls were named to the Class 2A first team by the KSCA, which names separate all-state teams in three classes based on the KHSAA’s track and field alignment. They earned their spots by being among the top 10 vote-getters in their class.
Both girls are also scheduled to play in the East-West all-star games (Goldey in the seniors’ game, Speake with the juniors) Saturday and Sunday in Lexington.
Also honored were Kendra Ross of Boyle County on the Class 2A second team and Elizabeth Harlow of Burgin on the Class A first team.

- First team (3.75-4.0 grade-point average): Emily Donlon and Hayley Hellyer of Boyle; Paisley Carey of Burgin, Evie Frederick, Cara Underwood and Carly Walton of Danville; Goldey and Elizabeth Miller of Garrard; Hannah McKenzie of Mercer County.
- Second team (3.5-3.74): Shelby Lilly of Burgin; Jessica Morris of Garrard.
