All-District 7-5A softball selections

Bayleigh Baudouin

Bayleigh Baudouin – District 7-5A MVP, Class 5A All-State Selection – Hahnville, Senior
Baudouin wraps up her sensational career at Hahnville with her third consecutive selection at District 7-5A MVP. The senior shortstop batted .465 and reached base over half the time, posting a .504 on-base percentage. She hit four home runs, scored 41 runs and drove in 34 RBIs, playing stellar defense all the while. She led a senior class among the most successful in school history, with the Tigers shattering several program records during her junior year, then shaking off the loss of several starters from that team to lead the way for a younger group post a 22-10 season with a district championship.

Tyler Oubre

Tyler Oubre – Class 5A All State Selection – Destrehan, Sophomore
The sophomore emerged as one of the most dominant pitchers in Louisiana. She posted a 1.58 ERA this season and guided Destrehan to the Class 5A quarterfinals, the furthest the Wildcats’ program has ever ventured in the postseason. She allowed one earned run through the entirety of that playoff run, which saw her pitch 27 total innings, including a 13-inning classic in a win over Northshore. She struck out 16 batters in that game and 274 on the season, allowing a less than 1 WHIP .

District 7-5A Coach of the Year

Jerry Nugent, Hahnville
Many counted Hahnville out of making a significant splash before the 2019 season, with the majority of a powerful starting lineup from 2018 lost to graduation. Nugent and his team believed otherwise, and proved it this season en route to another District 7-5A championship, a 22-10 record, No. 12 seed and first round playoff win. What will be a more experienced Tigers team seems primed to take a step forward next season.

First Team

Marissa Allemand, Hahnville
A senior ourfielder, Allemand carried a strong finish to her junior year to post a big final year. She hit .371 and logged a .404 OBP, hit five home runs and drove in 25 RBIs.

Hannah Borne, Hahnville
Senior outfielder and experienced member of 18′ runner-up, Borne batted .314, got on base at a .418 clip and drove in 18 RBIs this season for the Tigers.

Hailey Beard, Hahnville
The Tigers’ ace had big shoes to fill on the mound for the Tigers, but she came up big to do just that. She went 19-5, including an unbeaten 6-0 district mark, struck out 101 batters and posted a 2.26 ERA and 1.99 WHIP.

Kate Bruce, Hahnville
The catcher was strong in her first season starting behind the plate, and carried a big bat in her debut as a starter: a .346 batting average and .441 on-base percentage (OBP) went with 28 RBIs on the season.

Makenna Cortez, Hahnville
Cortez came through with some memorable clutch hits late in the season, but in truth she hit all year long, batting .404 with a .509 on-base percentage, socking four home runs and driving in 32 RBIs.

Lainnie Dugas, Destrehan
Dugas was a stable force in the middle of the Wildcats’ lineup, with a team leading four home runs, 21 RBIs and 12 runs scored for the senior third baseman. She batted .255 on the season.

Sara Roussel, Hahnville
Roussel was another Tiger who virtually lived on base, posting a .487 OBP. She batted .371 with five home runs and 25 RBIs to help drive the Tigers’ offensive attack.

Kathryn Smith, Hahnville
One might say the “country strong” sophomore, as Coach Jerry Nugent calls her, had quite the debut: she is the Tigers’ reigning single season home run champion, setting that mark with 11 rockets out the park. She batted .387, got on at a .487 clip and drove in 33 RBIs.

Montana Smith, Hahnville
She broke out this season to become a fixture at or near the top of the Tigers’ batting order. Smith led the Tigers in runs scored with 44, batted .357, got on at a .478 clip, hit two home runs and drove in 21 RBIs.

Gia Zeringue, Destrehan
Zeringue, Destrehan’s first baseman, was stellar in district play, batting .600, driving in 10 runs and driving seven extra base hits in 7-5A competition. On the season, she led the Wildcats in batting (.421), runs (25) and RBIs (32). She got on base at a .459 clip.

Second Team

Grace Bruce, Hahnville
Bruce was a slick-fielding third baseman for the Tigers who also produced with her bat, batting .291 (.333 OBP) with a home run and 14 RBIs this season.

Brianna Dominguez, Destrehan
Dominguez hit .267 on the season but her bat really came alive in district play, where she batted .455 in 7-5A competition.

Alyssa Vicknair, Destrehan
Vicknair was a stellar defensive catcher for the Wildcats, posting 291 putouts in 294 attempts for a near perfect (.997) fielding percentage.

Chelsea Franck, Destrehan
Sophomore shortstop was elite with her glove, sporting a .900 fielding percentage while scoring 14 runs and hitting six doubles for the Wildcats.

T’Auna Fenroy, Destrehan
The freshman embraced the moment when her game-winning hit sparked a celebration for the Wildcats in a 13-inning win over Northshore that put her team in the state quarterfinals. She batted .290 and drove in 12 runs for the Wildcats.

MacKenzie Kliebert, Hahnville
Klibert pitched in numerous big spots throughout the year, as her power arm served as a difficult matchup for hitters mid-game on days she didn’t start. She went 7-3 with a 2.52 ERA this season.

Moriah Ocmond, Destrehan
The Wildcats’ sophomore centerfielder batted .260 with three home runs (second on the team) 20 runs scored and 20 RBIs.
