WBC Softball Racks up AMC Postseason Accolades

Walnut Ridge, Ark. - The Williams Baptist College softball team had 14 student-athletes receive postseason honors from the American Midwest Conference.

Callie Brooks was honored as a First Team All-Conference selection after her stellar statistical senior season.  Brooks is second on the team in hitting with a .363 batting average.  She leads the team in doubles (10), triples (6), home runs (9), RBIs (48), runs scored (40) and total bases (110).  Brooks also finished second on the team with 8 stolen bases and had a 1.000 fielding percentage.

Three Lady Eagles found themselves on the Second Team All-Conference team.  Madelyn Poe currently leads the team in batting this season with a .411 average, and she also leads the team in stolen bases (16) and total hits (62).  She also hit four triples and drove in 23 runs from primarily the leadoff spot in the lineup.

Rylee Rogers has been the ace of the WBC pitching staff this season and is well deserving of her Second Team All Conference honor.  Fresh off three wins in the final day of the AMC Tournament, Rogers has racked up career-highs across the board in her junior season.  She currently sports a 22-9 record with a 2.38 ERA and has thrown three complete game shutouts this season.  In her 188 innings of work, she has surrendered 166 hits, 64 earned runs, 51 walks and has 159 strikeouts.

Brooke Mason was also selected as a Second Team All-Conference performer.  The freshman hit .311 with five doubles, seven home runs, 34 RBIs, and one stolen base.

In addition, fourteen Lady Eagles received Academic All-Conference accolades.  To qualify for this award, a student-athlete must have over a 3.0 grade point average and be at their institution for at least one year.  Randi Bachtel, Sarah Baker, Callie Brooks, Andrea Drake, Liz Gatlin, Kailee Hicks, Alexis Ingram, Ashley Lyons, Maddie Martin, Brooke Mason, Hayley Overbay, Madelyn Poe, Rylee Rogers and Alex Travis were the WBC student-athletes honored.

Williams currently owns a 35-19 record and won the American Midwest Conference Tournament on Friday afternoon in Conway, Ark., to advance to the opening round of the NAIA National Tournament.
