Bob Jones And Madison Academy Highlight All-State Softball Team

MADISON- The 2024 All-State softball teams have been named and six players representing two of the four local schools are part of the elite group of student-athletes selected by the Alabama Sports Writers Association.

Both Bob Jones and Madison Academy each had three players selected to the list for their outstanding play in the 2024 season. Bob Jones, which finished 29-16-1 for Whitney Deaver in her eighth season as Lady Patriots head coach, is represented by First-Team selections Charlotte Herron and Natalia Kenyatta and A.J. Vineski on the Second-Team. All three were seniors. The Mustangs of Madison Academy (33-6) under the leadership 10-year head coach Dean Clark were represented by underclassmen with First-Team selection Cat Schreiber, So., Second-Team selection Emily Burgreen, Jr., and Honorable Mention listing Evie Stephenson, seventh.

For Bob Jones, Herron was chosen as an infielder. She batted .504 with a slugging percentage of .985. She posted 68 hits, with 59 RBIs scoring 56 runs. Her performance at the plate included 17 doubles, three triples and 14 homeruns. Kenyatta was selected as a designated hitter where she batted .519 with a slugging percentage of 1.008. She had 68 hits with 51 RBIs with 13 doubles, three triples and 15 homers. She also set school records with 28 walks and 70 runs scored. Vineski’s pitching prowess led to her Second-Team selection.

At the plate, she batted .416 with 52 hits, 46 RBIs, 16 doubles, two triples and four homeruns.

Madison Academy made it to the Class 3A semi-finals of the AHSAA State Tournament falling to Plainview 9-5 thus ending its spectacular 2024 season.
