Lenoir-Rhyne's Jessica Fellmeth has been named the 2013 Food Lion South Atlantic Conference Tournament Most Valuable Player, league officials announced today.
In addition, junior outfielder Jody Mizelle (Colerain, N.C.), junior third baseman Haily Jarman (Wadesboro, N.C.) and freshman pitcher Maryann Hoskins (Havelock, N.C.) all earned league all-tournament honors as well for the Bears.
All four players led Lenoir-Rhyne to its fourth consecutive Food Lion SAC Tournament Championship and eighth in school history dating back to the 2000 season. Fellmeth, a senior first baseman from Waxhaw, N.C., batted .650 for the tournament (13-for-20) with a home run and four runs batted in. Fellmeth also had three or more hits in three of those contests.
Mizelle hit .458 (11-for-24) with a pair of home runs and five RBI while Jarman batted .455 (10-for-22) as the Bears went 5-1 for the tournament. On the mound, Hoskins fashioned a 3-1 mark with a 0.79 earned run average and 21 strikeouts and won both games on Sunday in the finals - 7-5 and 8-0 over Catawba - to lead Lenoir-Rhyne to the title.
Lenoir-Rhyne (35-14), the second-ranked team in last week's Southeast Regional Poll, has earned the league's automatic berth to the NCAA Division II Playoffs. The regional tournament announcement will take place on Monday, May 6, at 10:30 a.m. L-R will be making its eight straight appearance to the national tournament.
