We are just a little past the mid-way point of district play for area softball teams and the picture has become even clearer on who the best of the best is in Houston.

The best team, hands down, has been Lake Creek.

The Lions are undefeated and rolled through their district competition. They have also beaten teams like Katy, Pearland, Atascocita, and Deer Park and those are all Class 6A teams. Emiley Kennedy has been crushing it hitting .375 with 24 RBIs and nine home runs. In the circle, Kennedy is 8-0 with 111 strikeouts and just seven walks with no runs in 55 innings.

Sophomore Ava Brown has also been crushing it, hitting .609 with 29 RBIs, 10 doubles, and seven home runs. Brown is also 7-0 with a 0.95 ERA with 76 strikeouts and three walks in 44 innings. Junior Madelyn Lopez is hitting .561 with 29 RBIs and four home runs.
