Carter leads WC softball post-season honors


Wilmington College softball junior Lindsey Carter has been named second team All-Ohio Athletic Conference.

Carter, who graduated from WC with a degree in exercise science in three years, was one of the team’s leaders in batting average (.376) while also tallying 44 hits, two triples and two home runs.

The Clinton-Massie High School graduate drove in 16 runs, stole a Quaker-best 11 bases and carried a perfect 1.000 fielding percentage playing primarily left field. In conference games only, Carter hits .314 with four doubles, two home runs and five stolen bases.

Carter also was one of five Quakers to earn Academic All-District honors from the College Sports Communicators.

Carter, McKenna Archey, Olivia Doll, Judaea Wilson and Rachel Berry garnered Academic All-District honors and will be on the ballot for a chance at becoming an Academic All-American. In order to qualify for nomination for Academic All-District, student-athletes must meet the following qualifications:

• Sophomore athletically or higher

• 3.50 cumulative grade point average or higher

• Been enrolled at the institution for at least one calendar year

• Starter or key reserve

Archey, a junior social work major from West Jefferson, appeared in 31 games and hit .341. She drove in 16 runs with eight strikeouts and hit two of the squad’s four home runs on the season.

Doll, a junior agriculture major from Cincinnati, hit .357 in 30 games playing primarily second base. She drove in 13 runs with three of her 30 hits being of the extra-base variety.

Wilson, a sophomore education major from Delaware, led the team in at-bats (130), hits (51), average (.392) and runs scored (28). The all-region honoree a season ago drove in a dozen runs and started every game at third base.

Berry, a sophomore exercise science major from Lebanon, finished the season with a .344 batting average having appeared in 34 games as an outfielder. She drove in 14 runs, hit three doubles, and stole three bases.
