Seguin grad Luna named softball MVP of NJCAA Region XIV
(Corsicana) – Former Seguin High School softball star Ciara Luna was recognized for an outstanding freshman season at Navarro College with multiple post-season honors from the National Junior College Athletic Association this spring.  

Luna was named the Most Valuable Player of NJCAA Region XIV and earned a spot on the All-Region First Team after displaying the same dominance in the pitcher’s circle against collegiate competition that Matador fans grew accustomed to watching at the high school level between 2010 and 2013.  

The right-handed freshman was also named first-team All-Conference for the East Zone of Region XIV.

Luna went 19-6 during the regular season with a 1.12 ERA, and picked up her 20th win in the first round of the Region XIV Tournament before the Bulldogs were eliminated with a pair of losses in the event.  

One of Navarro’s post-season defeats came at the hands of eventual national champion Angelina College, which featured a pair of Luna’s former Seguin teammates, Sidney Allen and Meranda Rodriguez, and a former Luna adversary in ex-Clemens pitcher Samantha Moore.  

Luna was a four-year varsity standout under head coach John Garcia at Seguin High School.  

She was a first-team All-District selection in three of those four seasons, and was named the District 27-4A MVP as a senior in 2013.  

Luna helped the Matadors advance to the fourth round of the Class-4A playoffs as a freshman in 2010, to the third round of the 5A playoffs in 2012, and to the second round of the 4A post-season in 2013.
