The Huntingdon softball team earned three of the Great South Athletic Conference’s top awards for a second consecutive year.
With the release of the GSAC All-Conference awards, senior catcher Brittany Richardson was named Player of the Year, senior Melissa McClure was named Pitcher of the Year and head coach Gynger Williams was named Coach of the Year. A total of 14 Huntingdon players were recognized as either All-Conference, All-Freshmen, All-Academic or for Sportsmanship.
This is McClure’s first selection as Pitcher of the Year, but the third straight season a Huntingdon Pitcher has been named Pitcher of the Year. Entering the GSAC tournament, McClure led the conference in wins (13) and ERA (1.88) and was fifth in strikeouts (81) this season. She also pitched three shutouts and two no-hitters, including a perfect game this season.
