Three Eagles Earn Conference Honors
Freshman pitcher Alyssa Welsh (Woodbury Heights, N.J./ Gateway Regional) and freshman outfielder Ashton Tomlinson (Millsboro, Del./ Sussex Tech) were named to the Freedom Conference Second Team. Sophomore second baseman Kasey Williams (Strasburg, Pa./ Pequea Valley) was given an honorable mention.
Welsh made the most appearances on the mound for the Eagles, and in her 22 appearances, she struck out 82 batters—third best in the conference. Welsh had her best game of the season on March 21, when she pitched a no-hitter with eight strike outs against conference opponent Wilkes University.
Tomlinson finished second on the team with a .348 batting average, but led the Eagles with a .500 slugging percentage. She was tops in the conference with four triples and tied for fifth with nine doubles. Tomlinson batted in 20 runs and scored 23 times.
Williams led the Eagles with a .374 batting average and a .412 on base percentage. Williams was 14th overall in the conference in batting. Williams had six doubles, a triple, two home runs and led the Eagles with 26 RBIs. Williams also had the best fielding percentage for an Eagles infielder (.969).
The Eagles finished the 2014 campaign with a 16-19 record, but with these returning all-conference players, the Eagles should be even better next season.
