Junior Vance Blair was chosen as the second team shortstop.  He produced a .353 batting average and a 50% on base percentage during the district season.  Blair also showed his speed with 16 stolen bases on 16 attempts.

The district Newcomer of the Year, sophomore Campbell Kirkpatrick, was one of three All-South Plains outfielders.  He played in all twelve district games getting a hit in each.  Kirkpatrick had the most tries at the plate with 40 and finished the district season with a .300 average.  He also had success on the base path with six stolen bases.
