Corona Chosen as 5A-6A Softball Athlete of the Year
June 4, 2019
Dripping Springs High School softball player Camille Corona has been named the 2018-19 5A-6A Softball Athlete of the Year by the Texas Girls Coaches Association. This is the first time ever that a DSHS softball player has received this honor.
As a senior this spring, Camille batted .650 with an on-base percentage of .699 and slugging percentage of 1.034. She hit hour homeruns, had 14 triples and five doubles, 27 RBI and 74 runs scored. In 117 at-bats, she only struck out four times. Camille’s career batting average was an amazing .522.
An infielder, Camille was the District 25-5A Most Valuable Player after being named Defensive MVP last year. She was a three-time selection to the All-District First Team. Camille received all-state honors from both the Texas Girls Coaches Association and the Texas Sportswriters Association as a sophomore and junior (this year’s not yet released). The Austin American Statesman selected Camille as the Newcomer of the Year in 2016 and as a member of the All-Centex First Team in 2018 after being on the All-Centex Second Team in 2017 (2019 honors not yet announced). She also has been named to the Academic All-District Team for three consecutive years and is a member of National Honor Society.
Camille is headed to UT to play for the Longhorn softball team this fall.
The Lady Tigers, coached by District 25-5A Coach of the Year Wade Womack, advanced to the regional semifinals this season.
