FISCHER — Canyon Lake softball’s transition to a new league in 2019 may not have led to a repeat trip to the postseason, but the Lady Hawks’ accomplishments within District 28-4A didn’t go unnoticed.
Following the 2019 campaign, Canyon Lake received word that five players had garnered on-field honors from the district. The list was headlined by the duo of junior infielder Marley Carrizales and junior utility player Madison “Maddy” Puente.
Carrizales filled the role of leadoff hitter for the Lady Hawks and used her speed to give opposing catchers fits while on the basepaths. The shortstop also showcased solid work defensively.
Puente was the team’s starting pitcher for much of the season and also displayed a dangerous bat in the lineup.
Canyon Lake also saw the trio of sophomore catcher Kaylee Puente, junior infielder Adriana Peaslee and senior outfielder Bailey Bryan land on the district’s second team.
Kaylee Puente became a reliable bat in the order this year after a breakout freshman season. Peaslee was another performer who balanced stellar defense with plenty of pop at the plate.
Last, but certainly not least, Bryan once again showed off her ability from the plate as the Lady Hawks’ most powerful hitter. The Concordia University signee was also a very solid defensive player for Canyon Lake.
The Lady Hawks went 11-17 overall this past season and were 2-8 in 28-4A play.
