Victoria East split the district title with Gregory-Portland. The teams also split the District 30-4A MVP.
East sophomore catcher Lexie Elkins was named co-MVP in softball along with Hailey Kirkland, a senior pitcher from Gregory-Portland. East split the regular season district title with the Ladycats, and won a one-game playoff for the top spot in extra innings, 3-2.
The Titans won two awards, including splitting the Newcomer of the Year award. Freshman pitcher Alisha Quinterro won a share of the award with West pitcher Karly Rae Hoerig. The Titans' Marina Rios also won Defensive Player of the Year.
Calhoun's Tiffany Castillo was named Offensive Player of the Year after batting .661 this season with 13 home runs for the 31-9-1 Sandies, who made it the furthest of any team from the district by reaching the regional quarterfinals before losing to Tuloso-Midway last weekend.
Victoria East landed three on the first team, including shortstop Briana Arguello, designated player Kaitlyn Morgan and center fielder AC Cruz.
The Warriors double play combination of Abby Mease and Sevanah Campos Reyes also earned first-team honors. For Calhoun, junior pitcher Marissa Snyder, senior second baseman Rilea Whitaker and outfielder Hillarie Hill were also on the first team.
