Following highly-successful 2016 campaigns for both the Minden Crimson Tide and Lady Tiders, baseball and softball all-district teams were released late last week.
The Crimson Tide (14-12, 8-2 District 1-4A) finished as district runner-up to the Benton Tigers. The senior-heavy squad got hot down the stretch in district, including an exciting home victory over North DeSoto in extra innings. For their efforts, nine Tiders landed on the 1-4A all-district team.
First team selections for the Tide were pitchers Trace Francis and Gavin Smith, catcher Matt Eskew, infielder Gunner Stephens
