Softball - Fri, May. 18, 2012

Georgetown College softball last had All-Region honorees in 2008. This year the Tigers have three - Chelsea Riney, Jordan Clemons and Madelyn Brown. Riney and Clemons were named First Team All-Midwest Region and Brown was second team. They were the only three from the Mid-South Conference to be recognized at this level.

GC went 31-15 this season, finishing second in the conference and playing a rigorous schedule, chalked full of ranked or receiving votes teams. The trio played in all 46 games. Riney and Clemons started all 46 as two of the generals in the field at centerfield and shortstop respectively. Brown started 45 times in a variety of roles - catcher, first base and designated hitter.

Riney was coach Thomas Thornton's lead-off hitter and her .401 batting average paced the Tigers this season. She was the lone hitter with an average of .400 or better, Clemons was the next highest with a .368.

Riney had 65 hits, including six doubles and two triples, 44 runs scored, 12 RBI, a .463 slugging percentage with a .426 on base percentage and 42-of-47 stolen bases.

Clemons had 50 hits, including six doubles, with 27 RBI, 28 runs scored, a .412 slugging percentage with a .431 on base percentage and 22-of-25 stolen bases.

Brown hit .304 with 42 hits, including five doubles, one triple and a homerun, 20 RBI, 21 runs scored, a .377 slugging percentage with a .364 on base percentage and was eight-of-eight in stolen bases.

"All three are leaders on the field and off," Thornton said. "Chelsea anchors the outfield, Jordan leads the infielders and Madelyn calls her own game from behind the plate. She and Michelle (Dresselhaus) worked really well together and part of a pitcher's success is that relationship with the catcher."

Brown had 283 putouts with a .987 fielding percentage - the highest among her teammates playing 20 or more games. The next closest in putouts was Katie Mann's 129.
