Two Meadowview Christian School softball players are selected to compete in the AISA All-Star Softball games next week.

Shortstop Grace Redd and pitcher-outfielder Avery Smith will compete in the AISA senior and junior All-Star Games on Tuesday at the Lagoon Park Softball Complex in Montgomery.

The junior game will start at 5 p.m., followed by the senior contest at 7 p.m.  Junior players must return to the front field for registration at 3:30 p.m. The seniors must report at 4 p.m.

Smith will play for the Nationals Junior All-Star team. Redd will play for the Nationals Seniors All-Star Team.

“I’m very excited about playing in the game,” Redd said. “It means a lot that I got picked.”

Redd and Smith played big roles as MCS reached the AISA State Softball Tournament. The Lady Trojans reached the Elite Eight.

“I feel great about being picked for the All-Star game, I did not expect it,” Smith said. “Playing in the game will give me an early start for next season.”

Redd will be playing in her third AISA All-Star game this season. She also played in the AISA All-Star volleyball and basketball contests.

The MCS graduate said it’s an honor to play in all three AISA postseason contests.

“It was a great experience and I got to meet and play with against a lot of different people,” Redd said.

MCS coach Shawn Sellers said he appreciated Redd’s contribution and looking forward to the future with Smith leading a young squad next year.

“The foundation has been laid and I am really excited about whats to come in the future,” Sellers said.
