Selected by a vote conducted by the Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference head coaches, three Cloud County Community College softball players have been named to the KJCCC Division II All-Conference softball teams.

Earning first-team honors is freshman Ryleigh Jones while sophomore Delaney Exon and Shayna Fila both earned second-team All-KJCCC honors in the "B" division of KJCCC Division II.

Leading all KJCCC Division II players in stolen bases with 51, Jones would appear in and start all 51 games for the T-Birds in her freshman campaign while leading CCCC in batting average (.403), extra-base hits (26), home runs (nine), and runs batted in (42). Striking out just 25 times in 154 at-bats, Jones would record the 13th-highest slugging percentage (.701) in the KJCCC Division II while her nine home runs were 14th-most in KJCCC Division II. Conference play would see the Alma, Kansas native hit .404 at the plate to go along with 32 of her 51 stolen bases while recording an on-base percentage of .475 in 32 conference games.

Appearing in 49 of Cloud County's 51 games this season, Exon would get the nod for second-team All-KJCCC honors with a batting average of .331 which included 13 doubles and three home runs for the T-Birds. The 13 doubles for Exon would rank 11th among all KJCCC Division II players this season as the Lincoln, Nebraska native would have an on-base percentage of .395 with 45 hits in 136 at-bats while scoring 31 times and driving in 34 total runs.

Fila would finish the year by appearing in and starting 50 of CCCC's 51 games in 2022 and record a batting average of .373 with 56 hits in 150 total at-bats. Leading all of KJCCC Division II with nine sacrifice bunts, Fila would record the 11th most hits (56) among division II conference players and also rank in the top-20 in both batting average (.373, 11th) and stolen bases (15, 18th).

Cloud County would finish the 2022 campaign under first-year head coach John Kelly with 18 total wins, their most in a season since 2018 and a 10-win improvement from the 2021 season. The three All-KJCCC selections are the most in a single season for the T-Birds since 2017 when four Cloud County players would earn all-conference honors.
