To the victors often go the spoils of success. However, Brusly High School pitcher Mary-Cathryn Comeaux humbly offers a different perspective.
“Class 3A had such an awesome group of players and teams this year,” Comeaux said. “We knew coming into the season that we had a shot at winning a title, but that it would take everything we had to do it. I knew it would take everything I had, so to be recognized in 3A is amazing.”
Comeaux was selected as the Outstanding Player on the Class 3A All-State softball team selected by the Louisiana Sports Writers Association. She shares top billing on the 3A baseball/softball teams with Sterlington’s Trey Rugg, the Outstanding Player on the baseball squad.
Wayne Stein of St. Charles Catholic and Becky Lambert of Archbishop Hannan claimed the Coach of the Year honors on the teams selected by a panel of writers from across the state.
Comeaux, the Gatorade Louisiana Softball Player of the Year, led the Panthers to their first 3A softball since 2013. She finished 25-1 in the circle with a 0.558 earned run average and 288 strikeouts. The Southeastern Louisiana signee also batted .500 with 10 home runs and 36 RBIs.
Rugg closed his career by leading the Panthers to a state championship. On the mound, he held a 1.15 ERA and struck out 90 over 97 ⅓ innings. At the plate, he registered a team-leading .389 batting average with 36 RBIs and eight home runs.
Stein led St. Charles to its first LHSAA baseball title after six runner-up finishes. The Comets won 17 of their final 19 games and finished 31-8.
