Lawrence University softball standout Shannon Murray has been named to the National Fastpitch Coaches Association All-Great Lakes Region Team.
Murray (Lawrenceville, Ga./Dacula) was a third-team selection. This marks the second time Murray has been chosen for the all-region team. Murray, who was an All-Midwest Conference selection this spring as well, was a third-team all-region selection in 2010.
Murray led the team in hitting with a .344 average and was the team’s top pitcher. Murray had a team-best nine doubles, tied for the team lead with two triples, smacked two homers and drove in a team-high 21 runs. Murray finished with an impressive .956 OPS (on-base plus slugging percentage).
On the mound, Murray posted an 8-14 record with a 3.70 earned run average. Murray struck out 107 and walked only 19 in 143.2 innings.
This marks the 16th consecutive season that Lawrence has had at least one all-region selection.
