Louisville, Ky. – Five Clark University students-athletes have been named to the Easton/National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) Scholar-Athlete list it was announced earlier this week.
The rankings and honors recognize the academic prowess of softball teams and individual student-athletes from across seven membership divisions with a 3.5 grade-point average or higher.
For Clark, the honored student-athletes include Leah Bodin (Andover, Vt.), a two-time recipient, Taylor Erickson (Natick, Mass.), Kayleigh McHugh (Pepperell, Mass.), Kendra Walker (Cumberland, R.I.) and Sami West (Rochester, N.H.).
The Cougars improved dramatically in 2016, registering 13 wins and will return a host of key individuals for 2017 including the lone senior in Lauren Mackey (Dublin, N.H.) who has a .358 career batting average and is four hits away from 100 for her career.
