Rightfully so, many Jackson and Notre Dame softball players garnered postseason honors following this fall.

Coming out first was the SEMO All-Conference selections as the Bulldogs and Indians combined for seven first-team honorees.

Jackson had the most first-team selections as seniors pitcher Karli Johnson, catcher Miranda Ladson, second baseman Kylie Darrow and short stop Miranda Carnell earned first team all-conference.

Being named first team all-conference for Notre Dame were juniors first baseman Hailey Burnett, short stop Kadi Dohogne and third baseman Ainsley Burnett.

Each of these players were also named Class 5 District 1 First Team All-District as Bulldogs senior center fielder Ashley Carrow and Indians freshman third baseman Miley Conklin earned the honor as well.

Carrow and Conklin were both named second team all-conference. Jackson senior left fielder Brandi Smythe also earned second team all-conference and second team all-district, while senior catcher Carolyne Cork and junior pitcher Halle Ressel took home the same honors for the Bulldogs.
