Murray State College Softball Players Receive All-Region Awards

Eight MSC softball players were awarded All-Region honors for the 2016 season.

Freshman pitcher Audrey Simpson, of Cuero, Texas, freshman catcher Sydnee Hinkle, of Justin, Texas, freshman infielder Selena Mendoza, of Mesquite, Texas, freshman utility Kayla Mitchell, of Fairfield, Texas and freshman infielder Shelby Wilson, of Mesquite, Texas were awarded First Team All-Region honors.

Freshman pitcher Kira head, of Caney, Okla., freshman infielder Katie Caraway, of Durant, Okla. and freshman outfielder Randi Vincent, of Claremore, Okla. were awarded Second Team All-Region honors.

Players were nominated by MSC Head Coach Marie Stone, based on season statistics and performance. After nomination, nominees are then voted on by a group of NJCAA coaches.

Players receiving All-Region honors will now be eligible for South Region Awards, which include players from Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas, Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi. 

"We are very proud of these young ladies! They have worked extremely hard all year, and I am not surprised to see these efforts recognized and rewarded," Head Coach Marie Stone said.

She continued, "We have established a standard of excellence for our players and program and each year I expect us to continue to improve in all areas. Next season we will start back up in August and set new goals and raise our standards and expectations. I am positive that our returners and new players will be ready for this challenge."

This season the MSC Softball Program set new single-season team records in home runs with 26, stolen bases with 45, hits with 382, runs with 218 and batting average with an average of .337.
