Senior Kristen Linares and freshman Gabi Quintanilla were chosen for the All-State 2nd Team, while Abby Thrash received honorable mention.

During the softball team banquet, freshmen Lillia Farlow and Alexis Martinez received the Friar award, given to the player(s) who best exemplify the character, attitude and effort that represent the Lady Friar softball program.
