Brusly High School may have not won 3A state titles this year in softball or baseball, but it didn’t stop players from landing spots among the best in the state.
Three members of the softball team landed state honors and two baseball players garnered state recognition on lineups selected by votes from members of the Louisiana Sportswriters Association.
Carlie Comeaux, who notched Most Valuable Player honors in District 7-3A and the All-Metro squad for Classes B-3A, picked up the first-team honor as outfielder.
Comeaux closed her senior year with a .510 batting average. She recently signed to play college softball for Louisiana-Monroe.
“She was a great leader,” head coach Beau Bouvier said. “She used her experience and maturity to help motivate our team through our season.”
Teammates Akiya Thymes and Carli Jo LeBlanc earned spots on the Honorable Mention roster.
Thymes, the school’s first-ever LSU softball commitment, finished her junior year with a .303 batting average.
LeBlanc got the nod with a .330 average at the plate. She also logged a 15-1 showing on the mound.
Katie Brignac, who led John Curtis to the 3A state title, was named Player of the Year. She finished the season 23-2.
St. Louis head coach Jessica Prevost was selected Coach of the Year.
Senior pitcher Luke LeBlanc notched Brusly’s lone entry on the first-team baseball roster. The District 7-3A Co-MVP chalked a 10-2 record at the mound.
LeBlanc had a 1.05 earned-run average and 77 strikeouts over 63 innings.
Parkview Baptist pitcher Adam Tarver, who shared the Co-MVP honors with LeBlanc, was the only other 7-3A entry on the All-State roster.
Senior outfielder Kwanstan Adkins (.327, three HR, 34 runs, 20 RBIs) also grabbed a spot on the Honorable Mention roster, along with Chris Dupont of Parkview and Brandt Broussard of University High.
