The list of honors for three of the area’s top softball players continues to grow.

Parkview Baptist shortstop Nicky Dawson, St. Thomas More catcher Bailey Hemphill and St. Amant first baseman/pitcher Kourtney Gremillion were named to the National Fastpitch Coaches Association’s All-American first team.

The trio was part of the NFCA All-South Region team announced Monday. They are the only Louisiana players on the 48-player NFCA teams.

Dawson, an LSU signee, batted .658 with five home runs, 36 RBIs, 65 runs scored and 58 stolen bases. She set several national records, including one for most triples in a career with 49.

Hemphill is an Alabama signee who was walked 49 times in 99 at-bats as a senior. She still hit .560 with a 1.380 slugging percentage, 12 home runs, 29 RBIs and 22 runs scored.

Gremillion, who made the NFCA squad as a utility player, is a Louisiana-Lafayette signee who played first base and pitched. She batted .610 with 13 home runs, 62 RBIs and 43 runs scored. Gremillion also was a 12-4 as a pitcher.

All three players have received a long list of honors. Dawson was the The Advocate’s Girls Athlete of the Year. Gremillion was a finalist for that award. Hemphill was The Acadiana Advocate’s Girls Athlete of the Year.
