CORPUS CHRISTI — Student-athletes from 18 regional programs will make up the 2023 South Texas High School Softball Preseason All-Star Team to be honored Thursday, January 26 at the Omni Hotel in downtown Corpus Christi.

San Diego and Santa Gertrudis Academy each have three representatives in the Private 3A Division. Along with a pair of Odem and Refugio picks, Aransas Pass, Falfurrias, Incarnate Word Academy, London, and Riviera offer single picks to buyers.

The 4A-5A division is balanced by six schools – Alice, Bishop, Calallen, Carroll, Flour Bluff, and Tuloso-Midway – each receiving two placements. Veterans Memorial, Sinton and Ray complete the large school contingent.

Alaunah Almaraz (Calallen), Jamie Burch (Sinton), Sedalia Flores (Bishop), Ava Hernandez (Alice), Aylah Mata (Carroll) and Jade Moreno (Flour Bluff) were also named preseason All-Stars a year ago. Moreno is now a three-time selection.

The 30 softball standouts were chosen by head coaches from 31 Coastal Bend high schools.

American League All-Star and Rawlings Gold Glove catcher Jose Trevino returns to the Sparkling City as the keynote speaker for the 17th South Texas Winter Baseball Banquet presented by Whataburger.

Ray High School product Nick Loftin, now starring in the Kansas City Royals system, is named Mike Adams South Texas Pro Player of the Year. Before Jose Bravo and Justin Dirden are presented with their Hooks POY hardware, the banquet culminates with Astros coach and Refugio native Dan Firova receiving a lifetime achievement award.

The doors open at 18:00 and the program starts at 19:00. Call 361-561-HOOK (4665) for tickets.
