FOWLER LEADS THREE TORNADOS ON 2012 SOFTBALL ALL-CONFERENCE TEAM

Mallory and Clemens earn SAC Second Team recognition

Rock Hill, S.C. - Led by Brittany Fowler’s First Team selection, the Brevard College Tornados softball team saw three players named to the postseason All-South Atlantic Conference, as announced by the conference office on Wednesday afternoon.

Fowler became the first BC softball player to earn First Team honors as the sophomore centerfielder from Waterloo, Ontario, Canada recorded a .333 batting average and displayed great defensive prowess, making multiple diving and run-scoring plays out in the outfield this season. Fowler added 26 runs scored and 38 hits, adding three doubles, one triple and an RBI to her totals, but really shone in campus play, recording 18 hits in 49 at-bats, scoring 10 runs while hitting .367 in conference action.

Chelsi Mallory and Kayla Clemens both recorded All-Conference Second Team honors, as Mallory earned recognition at second base, while Clemens was selected on the mound.

Mallory led the Tornados with a .364 batting average on the year and was the team leader in hits, runs, doubles, home runs and RBIs, while Clemens was the team leader on the mound with a 2.27 earned run average, going 14-14 on the season and recording 109 strikeouts.
