The 2010 softball season concluded with a third-place Section 5A finish. Now the bats and balls have now been stored away until next year. The end of the season brings awards, and in addition to the letterwinners, there are a number of individual awards granted.
For Kimball, the CMC gave Tesslynn Callander and Megan Garding First Team All-conference, with Megan Libbesmeier and Tiffany Berscheid receiving Second Team All-Conference.
CMC All-Conference Academic awards (for GPA above 3.70) went to Tesslynn Callander, Shantel Tschida, Kelsey Vigoren, and Abby Zoller. These four also earned All-State Academic from the Coaches Association for GPA over 3.75.
Four players were selected to the Section 5A All-Section Team for their performances in the Section playoffs. These were short-stop Tesslynn Callander, second-base Megan Garding, pitcher Megan Libbesmeier, and outfielder Tiffany Berscheid.
Callander and Garding were also picked for the St. Cloud Times All-Area Team as honorable mention.
Local awards were granted to the following. MVP was Tesslynn Callander, MV Bat was Megan Garding, MV Glove Tesslynn Callander, Team Player Beth Libbesmeier, and the Coaches Award went to Kelsey Vigoren. Letterwinners were seniors Callander, Vigoren, Beth Libbesmeier, Shantel Tschida, Abby Zoller, Kristen Kuechle, Melissa Konz, and Erin Gilpatrick.
