Pitcher Cameron Meeks of Sam Houston and outfielder Sierra Sacco of John Curtis claimed top honors on the Louisiana Sports Writers Association’s Class 5A All-State baseball and softball teams.
Meeks, a McNeese signee, was 10-0 with a 0.69 earned run average and 78 strikeouts in 61 innings pitched for the Class 5A runner-up Broncos. He also hit .405 with 15 doubles, four triples, five home runs and 51 runs batted in.
Sacco led the Patriots to a Division I runner-up finish was a .670 batting average, 67 stolen bases in 68 attempts and 56 runs scored. The sophomore also was one of the top defensive outfielders in the metro New Orleans area.
The coaches who won Class 5A titles were selected as the Coach of the Year winners by a panel of sportswriters from across the state. Glenn Cecchini of Barbe coached his team to wins in 27 of its last 28 baseball games, including a title-game win over Lake Charles area rival Sam Houston.
St. Amant High’s Amy Pitre led her school to its first LHSAA title since 2006. The Gators finished 26-2 with a lineup that included seven first-year starters.
