Bent Leads All-ACAA Softball Team

Bent Leads All-ACAA Softball Team

Denia Bent of Finlandia is a repeat double first-team selection and highlights the 23-member All-ACAA Softball Team as selected by the league's coaches.

Bent, a junior from Cape Coral, FL, was a first-team honoree as both a short stop and pitcher for the second consecutive year. She hit a hearty .323 at the plate with a .945 fielding percentage with only eight errors. In the circle she tallied 14 complete games with a 3.77 strikeouts per seven inning average and a 2.39 ERA.

Thomas More dominated the special awards with a win in four of the five categories. Mary Beth Odom is the Offensive Player, Kenzie Dickerson is the Defensive Player of the Year, Alix DeDreu is the Pitcher of the Year and Lindsay Eagan is the Coach of the Year. Marissa Varela of Alfred State took home Rookie of the Year honors.

Eagan led Thomas More to the ACAA Softball Championship with a 10-2 win over host Alfred State on Sunday. The Saints will host a NCAA Division III Softball Championship Regional this Friday-Sunday with Wilson, SUNY Geneseo and Dickinson also in their bracket.
