BOTETOURT CO., Va. -- Coming off their second straight appearance at the NCCAA Softball National Championships, four Lady Scots were recognized further for their performances both on and off the field. Beth Harris, Chelsea Krafft, and Courtney Wagoner were named NCCAA All-Americans, while Morgan Booker and Harris earned Scholar-Athlete honors. Harris, Krafft, and Wagoner were all named All-Conference and All-Region earlier this month.
Harris was a first-team All-American selection and produced a powerful bat in the middle of the Lady Scots' lineup this season. The senior from LaVergne, Tenn., hit a GSAC-leading 15 home runs and drove in 53 runs while hitting .434 in 43 games, including hitting two homers in regional play. Harris had four two-homer games this season as well as 19 multi-hit games and 14 multi-RBI games. In a 10-7 win over Berry on March 27, Harris went 3-for-4 with a home run, five RBIs, and three runs.
Krafft, a senior starting pitcher from Dalton, Ga., was placed on the second-team All-American list. She appeared in 37 games this spring and boasted an earned run average of 2.70. The senior struck out 182 batters in 187 innings of work, while opponents hit just .250 off her. She also threw 21 complete-games with one shutout and assisted in four other shutouts. On March 19, Krafft teamed with Harris to throw a five-inning no-hitter in a 10-0 win against Rust College.
A junior from Cummings, Ga., Wagoner was also a second-team All-American honoree. Wagoner posted a batting average of .387 with four home runs and 31 RBIs this season. She also walked 23 times to have an on-base percentage of .521 which led the team. Wagoner connected on two homers and drove in five runs in a game against Berry in April.
Booker and Harris were also honored with Scholar-Athlete awards in which student-athletes must possess a minimum GPA of 3.4.
