October 31, 2023
Perry High School senior Kennedy Hight was selected to the All-State Softball Middle West Team (3A-4A) as the No. 1 middle infielder. The announcement was made on Monday by the Oklahoma High School Fastpitch Softball Coaches Association. 
She was also named the top Oklahoma Region 1 All-Region middle infielder.

Hight had a stellar senior season breaking records. She set the following PHS softball program school records:

• Career At-Bats 510 (was 455)

In addition, head coach of the Lady Maroons, Bryan Hayes, was named the Middle Class (3A-4A) Coach of the Year and the All-State West game coach.
Hayes stated, "It is very difficult to get players on the All-State team as we have to compete with west schools like Washington, Tuttle, Blanchard, Newcastle, and Lone Grove. It’s a huge honor to be an All-State softball player and to be selected #1 is even more prestigious! Congrats to Kennedy Hight!” 
The All-State awards banquet is June 7 at Oklahoma Christian. The All-State softball game will be played on June 8, also at Oklahoma Christian.
