Following a third place finish in District 16-4A the Waxahachie Lady Indians had one player earn a superlative award for her play on the diamond as the All-District 16-4A team has been released.

Joining the team several games into district play, J.J. Jackson batted .429 in 28 district at bats to earn the newcomer of the year award.

A junior first baseman, Jackson had 12 hits and eight RBI in the No. 2 spot in the Lady Indians’ lineup.

“We played in a pretty tough district,” Waxahachie coach Jim Miller said. “With two state ranked teams, if you get any kind of district recognition it is a great honor. These girls are very deserving.”

Seniors Monica Jaramillo and Bradley Dawson and junior Tori Banda earned first team honors.

Jaramillo, an outfielder, batted .400 in district play with 18 hits, 10 RBI, seven stolen bases and an on-base percentage of .582.

Dawson, a catcher, batted .452 in district play with 19 hits, 10 RBI and an on-base percentage of .553.

A junior pitcher, Banda was 9-4 in district play with an ERA of 1.47. She struck out 100 batters in 81.1 innings pitched. At the plate she batted .308 with nine RBI and 12 hits.

Second team all-district honors were awarded to outfielder Tiffany Haines and shortstop Dakota Flesher.

“Haines has all the tools. She is going to be a good one for us when it is all said and done. She is already pretty good. She has speed, agility in the outfield, gets a good read off the bat and has a good throwing arm,” Miller said.

In her sophomore campaign, Haines batted .257 in district play with nine hits, three stolen bases and an on-base percentage of .422.

Flesher had two homeruns and 12 RBI in district play to lead the team. She batted .405 with 17 hits and an on-base percentage of .510.

“You can look a long time and it is going to be hard to find a shortstop that is as consistent as Dakota has been for us. We appreciate everything that she has meant to us and this program,” Miller said.

Honorable mention in district was awarded to Sam Martin, Kate Martin and Brenda Vitela.

Waxahachie finished the year 23-12 and 9-5 in district play. Mesquite Poteet defeated the Lady Indians in the bi-district playoff series. The Lady Pirates also defeated Midway in the playoffs.Following a third place finish in District 16-4A the Waxahachie Lady Indians had one player earn a superlative award for her play on the diamond as the All-District 16-4A team has been released.
