WACO – McLennan Highlassies softball players Ashley Mills and Amber Mills were named Top Returning Players for District D by the NJCAA on Tuesday.
Ashley, a left-handed pitcher from Groesbeck, was one of four pitchers from Region V North to make the list. She notched a 19-3 record with a 1.87 ERA and 121 strikeouts in the circle last season to earn first-team all-conference honors. Amber, a second baseman from Friendswood, recorded a .323 batting average with three home runs, 24 walks and 25 RBIs last season to earn first-team all-conference honors. Both players were selected to participate in the Texas Junior College Softball Coaches Association Sophomore All-Star games in the fall.
