WEST ORANGE — Miracle Sports released its All-State softball teams and other recognitions for all eight FHSAA classifications last week and several players from West Orange County were among those recognized.
West Orange, which advanced all the way to the Class 8A Regional Finals before falling to Hagerty, led the way among area teams with five players named to either the first or second teams for Class 8A.
Rising senior Jade Caraway was named 8A Defensive Player of the Year, and rising junior Lauren Mathis was named the Pitcher of the Year. Outgoing senior Kelsey Morrison also was named to the 8A First Team, as was rising sophomore Lexie Blair — the only freshman to make the first team. Outgoing senior Sabrina Stutsman was named to the 8A Second Team. Morrison is signed to play for the Tennessee Volunteers in college and Stutsman will be suiting up for the Florida State Seminoles.
In Class 3A, Windermere Prep had two players recognized on the 3A First Team.
Outgoing senior outfielder Sydney Pollock and outgoing senior infielder Racquel Fournet were both selected among the top players in the state in 3A, with Fournet also being recognized as the 3A Offensive Player of the Year.
Pollock will play her college softball for Southern Miss, and Fournet will compete for Florida Gulf Coast.
In Class 2A, three players from Foundation Academy — which won its first district championship this season — were recognized on either the 2A Second Team or as honorable mentions.
Outgoing senior infielder Leah Williams was named to the second team, as was rising sophomore Halina Lawrence. Alexandra Thomas, a utility player, was listed as an honorable mention.
