Munoz, Meyer earn softball honors

Genesis Munoz and Grace Meyer are reaping the rewards for their respective softball seasons this spring.

For the first time in Trinity Lutheran school history, the Cougars have an Indiana softball All-Star participant.

Munoz will be one of 21 players representing the South team in this year’s All-Star game. Each district nominated seven players, and Munoz received the most votes in District 5.

Being the top vote recipient also allowed Munoz to be the District 5 Class A/2A representative for Miss Softball, making her one of the 10 finalists for the award.
