ROCK HILL, S.C. (TheSAC.com) -- Catawba was picked ninth in the 2019 South Atlantic Conference's 2019 preseason softball coaches poll. Lenoir-Rhyne was chosen as the favorite in the conference race, grabbing 10 of the first-pace votes. Catawba did not place a player on the preseason all-conference teams, but do return a pair of honorable mention picks from a year ago in outfielders Allie Baker and Kaylee Cook

Baker led Catawba in hitting as a freshman in 2018 with a .337 average. She rapped out 34 hits and shared the team lead with seven stolen bases while standing second on the team with 22 runs scored. Cook, a junior, hit at a .333 clip with 11 RBI. The duo will be joined by 16 other letterwinners to give the Lady Indians an experienced squad under first-year head coach Mandy Harris-Morgan.

The South Atlantic Conference softball season gets underway on Friday, Feb. 1.  Catawba is on the road to open its season on Feb. 2 at Augusta. The Lady Indians will host Limestone for their home opener on Feb. 6 for 1 pm doubleheader. Catawba will be the host for the 2019 SAC Softball Championships, which will take place April 26-April 27 at Catawba’s Whitley Field.
