Tysinger and Naturile Earn NCCSIA All-State Softball Honors


SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba College placed two players on the 2015 College Division All-State Softball Teams as announced by the North Carolina Collegiate Sports Information Association (NCCSIA) on Tuesday.  Junior pitcher Carley Tysinger (Lexington, N.C./C. Davidson HS) and sophomore outfielder Natalie Naturile (Thomasville, N.C./E. Davidson HS) were first team picks.  Twenty-four student-athletes representing 15 different North Carolina universities and colleges were named to the 2015 NCCSIA College Division All-State Softball Teams.

Tysinger returned to the first-team All-State squad after appearing on the second-team unit in 2014.  The junior fanned 325 batters and posted 10 shutouts, both school records, en route to Daktronics honorable mention All-America status.  Tysinger posted a 27-11 record with a 1.60 earned run average (ERA) and won the SAC’s Pitcher of the Year Award.

Naturile joined Tysinger on the All-State side after batting .419 with seven home runs and 17 RBI.  She was named to both Daktronics and NFCA All-Region teams after helping Catawba to a 31-17 record, the school’s first SAC softball title and an NCAA Division II Tournament berth.
