Justice Named SAC Scholar Athlete for Softball
ROCK HILL, SC -- Catawba senior first baseman Alli Justice (Bishopville, MD/Decatur HS) has been named the 2012 South Atlantic Conference Softball Scholar-Athlete of the Year. The conference office made the announcement on Wednesday morning.
Justice is only the second softball player from Catawba to earn the Scholar-Athlete award, which is voted on by the SAC’s Faculty Athletic Representatives and recognize a combination of academic achievement, athletic excellence, service and leadership. Angie Grubbs won the award in both 1993 and 1994.
Justice is currently hitting .281 with 14 extra-base hits as the starting first baseman for Catawba. She helped the Lady Indians earn the No. 2 seed in the upcoming Food Lion SAC Softball Championship, the best regular season SAC finish in program history.
A communications major, Justice holds a 3.96 GPA and is a two-time NFCA Scholar-Athlete. The senior has been a member of the SAC Commissioner’s Honor Roll, the Catawba President’s Honor Roll, the Catawba Dean’s List and the Alpha Chi Honor Society.
She is a founding member of the Lambda Phi Eta Communications Honor Society, and is a previous recipient of the Karl Hales Award for Excellence in Communications.
Away from campus, Justice volunteers with the Atlantic General Hospital, the Global Literacy Project, Youth Exercise Services, Habitat for Humanity, Knox Middle School and Lady Shorebird ASA softball.
Justice is also a visible member of the Catawba community, serving on the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and with the Dean’s List dinners. In addition, she organized Catawba’s first “Strike-Out for Cancer” softball event in 2011, helping the event raise $3,000 for the American Cancer Society.
“Alli exemplifies the definition of a student-athlete,” said her coach, Nan Whitley. “She has always showed great leadership abilities and has great character traits.”
