After an undefeated district championship, the Lady Farmers softball team was well rewarded at the District 13-4A All-District awards.
Three Farmersville athletes earned superlative awards, led by starting pitcher and lead-off hitter Jamie Varga as the 13-4A Most Valuable Player. At the plate, she led the Lady Farmers with a .618 batting average, ranked 10th in the DFW Metroplex, along with 29 stolen bases.
She was also the top pitcher in the district, striking out 120 batters and recording 13 wins on the season. In her first year as the full-time pitcher for Farmersville, coach Wilfong was impressed with her development and the amount of innings the sophomore handled.
Along with Varga, two more sophomores earned superlative awards, as Morgan Erwin was named the 13-4A Defensive Player of the Year. The starting shortstop for the Lady Farmers was one of the most productive defensive players in the district and made an impact at the plate as the team’s No. 2 hitter.
Carleigh Deeds was given the Utility Player of the Year award by the district voters, playing catcher most of the season while also helping in the field when needed.
