Four Festus varsity softball players qualified as academic all-state members for this past fall. The Missouri State Fast-Pitch Softball Coaches Association is the sponsoring organization for this award.
Sara Hoffman (11), Jordan Oetting (12), and Cailey McFadden (10) were the Festus athletes recognized for this accomplishment. Athletes must meet several qualifications including a GPA over 3.5 and a class rank in the top 25%.
Abby Rickermann (9) qualified for the honor, but her freshman standing is not recognized by the organization as being eligible.
The entire Festus varsity team also qualified as an academic all-state team. The 15 athletes on the roster had a cumulative GPA of 3.35. This is the highest cumulative GPA for the Tigers in the past four years.
