Marshall Voted SAC Softball Freshman of the Year

Marshall and Whitesides earn first team All-SAC honors

ROCK HILL, SC -- Catawba’s Allie Marshall (Pleasant Garden, NC) was named the 2007 South Atlantic Conference Softball Freshman of the Year, while she was joined on the All-SAC first team by Jessie Whitesides (Yadkinville, NC) as the league announced its all-conference award winners on Wednesday.  Marshall becomes the first Catawba player to earn a major post-season honor from the conference in softball.

Marshall, a former standout at Southeast Guilford High School, has set school records this season in hits (73), home runs (14) and RBI (53).  The second baseman is batting .403 and has added 11 doubles.  Whitesides, a sophomore outfielder, is hitting .347 with 29 RBI.  She has hit 12 doubles and three home runs, while scoring 34 runs.  Whitesides has recorded 13 outfield assists and has stolen 10 bases. 

Lenoir-Rhyne catcher Karie Pushard, who helped lead the Bears to a conference championship by batting a team-best .368, and pitcher Meredith O'Connor, who set a conference record with 298 strikeouts, were named Softball Player and Pitcher of the Year.  Pushard ranked sixth in the league in slugging percentage (.648) and fifth in on-base percentage (.459).  O'Connor went 22-2 on the mound with a 1.08 ERA and allowed opponents to hit just .142 against her.

Mars Hill’s David Williams, who led the Lions to their first winning record since the South Atlantic Conference became an all-sports league in 1990, was named Coach of the Year.  The Lions are 32-20 overall and tied for sixth place in the conference standings with a 6-8 record.  Wingate catcher Mandi Chester was named SAC Scholar Athlete for the second year in a row.
