Winning state championships will bring in postseason honors and Calvary Baptist reaped those benefits from its softball and baseball teams’ recent state titles.

Lady Cavalier shortstop Ramsey Walker was named the Outstanding Player on the Class 1A All-State softball team and baseball coach Jason Legg won the Coach of the Year honor on the 1A baseball All-State team chosen by the Louisiana Sports Writers Association and announced today.

Walker, a sophomore, helped lead the Lady Cavaliers to their second straight Division IV state title and fourth championship in six state LHSAA tournaments. She hit .553 with nine home runs and 31 RBI.

Joining Walker on the team was outfielder D.J. Lynch, also a sophomore. Lynch hit .427 with 10 home runs and 36 RBI.

Legg, in his first year as the head coach at Calvary, took the Cavaliers to their fifth state baseball championship and first since 2019. CBA finished the season with a 26-15 record, facing a non-district slate heavy with higher-classification opponents.

Named to the All-State first team from Calvary were senior infielder Caden Flowers and sophomore outfielder Aubrey Hermes. Flowers finished with a .400 batting average, 25 RBI, 28 runs scored and 27 stolen bases. Hermes hit .371 with 18 RBI, scored 35 runs and stole 36 bases.
