Posted on: May 18th, 2012 by Joseph Vanden Acker

Lawrence University softball standout Shannon Murray has been chosen for the All-Midwest Conference North Division team in a vote by league coaches.

Murray (Lawrenceville, Ga./Dacula), a junior pitcher/infielder, was chosen for the team for the first time.

Murray hit .292 in eight conference games with one double, one homer and two runs batted in. She also posted a 2-6 record on the mound with a 3.37 earned run average. Murray struck out 37 and walked six in 52 innings.

On the season, Murray hit a team-high .344 with nine doubles, two triples, two homers and 21 runs batted in. Murray led the team in doubles, tied for the team lead in triples and led the team in RBIs.

Murray finished with an 8-14 record and a 3.70 ERA on the mound. She struck out 107 and walked only 19 in 143.2 innings. Murray also tossed the second no-hitter of her career and only the third in Lawrence history when the Vikings beat Grinnell College 12-0 on April 14.

This was second post-season honor in Murray’s career. She was chosen for the National Fastpitch Coaches Association All-Great Lakes Region team in 2010.
