By Jeff Greer

Palm Beach Gardens ace pitcher Kaylie Wallace has stacked up a pretty impressive haul of awards. She’s added the Miracle Sports Class 6A Player of the Year award to the pile.

Wallace was 16-3 this season with a 0.52 earned-run average, forming a devastatingly effective pitching duo with junior Shelby Turnier. The North Florida-bound righty also manned shortstop and left field for the Gators, batting .324 with 18 runs scored and 16 RBI. She had a .964 fielding percentage.

Palm Beach Gardens won its fourth state championship in seven years in May, with Wallace as its starter.

Wallace’s coach, Randy Jackson, was voted the Class 6A coach of the year. The Miracle Sports awards are selected by a panel of judges who coach softball at varying levels around the state.

Several other Gardens players made all-state teams, along with Wellington, Dwyer, Jensen Beach and Okeechobee players. Here are the full lists by class:
