WESSON, Miss. – Three Copiah-Lincoln Community College Lady Wolves have been named to the Mississippi Association of Community and Junior College All-State team after a vote by league coaches.
Pitcher Brooke Gonzales was named First Team All-State. A product of Live Oak High School (La.) in Denham Springs is a repeat selection after earning First Team honors as a freshman. The sophomore ace finished with an 18-6 record and recorded a 1.77 ERA. Gonzales posted two year combined record of 31-9 as a member of the Lady Wolves.
“Brooke Gonazles was a workhorse for us again this year,” said Lady Wolves head coach Allen Kent. “She gave us a chance to win every single time she took the mound and we’ll really miss her leadership next season.”
Third baseman Hannah Roberts of Summit was named Second Team All-State. A product of Amite School Center, she led the team with a .396 batting average. Roberts, a sophomore, only struck out seven times in 125 plate appearances.
“Hannah played exceptionally well at third base and really saw her offensive numbers increase,” said Kent. “We worked on letting the ball travel deeper into the zone and she bought into it.”
Shortstop Brooke Laigast of Covington, La. was named Second Team All-State. The Hannah High School product scored a team-high 40 runs. Laigast, a freshman, also led the team with 16 doubles and walked a team high 22 times.
“Brooke worked the count and was very solid as a leadoff hitter for us,” said Kent. “She was at the top of nearly every offensive category and committed only four errors in 136 total chances at shortstop.”
The Lady Wolves finished the season 26-16 and are 327-166 with three MACJC state championships in Kent’s 12 seasons as head coach.
