With the conclusion of the 2013 softball season Southeastern has announced that Courtney Moore and Jacee Bennett have been named Co-Female Athletes of the Year.
In addition to the honors received by Bennett and Moore, SE golf has named Greyden Blevins its team MVP for the 2012-13 season.
Moore, a senior catcher from Mesquite, Texas, was an All-Central Region and first team All-GAC selection after hitting .383 on the year with a team-high 59 hits in 154 at bats with a team-leading 13 doubles as well as four home runs and 46 RBI. She led the team with a .484 on-base percentage, adding 17 walks and 15 HBP to her hit total while also slugging .545. She was a perfect five-for-five stealing bases and added a .989 fielding percentage while playing every game behind the plate.
Bennett, a sophomore from Colbert, Okla., was the Great American Conference Pitcher of the Year and a first team All-Central Region pick after helping Southeastern to a regular season and postseason conference championship. Five times she was named the GAC Pitcher of the Week, and she also earned National Pitcher of the Week honors after being named the Most Outstanding Pitcher at the NFCA D-II Leadoff Classic. She posted a 21-5 record on the season with a 2.71 ERA in 44 appearances with 22 starts. She picked up nine saves and tossed 178.1 innings, striking out a team-best 188 hitters.
Moore and Bennett join Chris Roussell and Luka Radulovic who were named Co-Male Athletes of the Year at the picnic in early May.
