Four Lady ‘Hounds named Academic All-State

Wednesday, July 7, 2021
SWEET SPRINGS — The Sweet Springs softball team had four players selected for the MHSFA Academic All-State team for the 2021 spring season. The Lady Greyhounds posted a cumulative 3.57 grade-point average — with senior Kynleigh Fuehring (above), juniors Emilee Hall and Jaelyn Winfrey, and freshman Lauren Shahan each receiving individual honors. Sweet Springs posted a 10-10 record this season, getting to the Class 1, District 8 semifinals before being stopped by a walk-off 10-9 loss to Wellington-Napoleon, which finished third at the MSHSAA Championships. It had a cumulative 71-11 mark during the four previous campaigns (2016-19). The Lady ‘Hounds won district championships during that period and reached the state’s final four — losing a 10-6 decision in the semifinals against fellow I-70 Conference member Crest Ridge.
