Carrie Scott is Division III Softball All-American Again

Hope College senior catcher Carrie Scott of Centreville, Mich. has been voted an NCAA Division III All-American for the second time in her career.

Scott was among players honored by the Fastpitch Softball Coaches Association prior to the start of the NCAA tournament in Salem, Va.

She was honored as a second team All-American. This is the second time that she has achieved All-America recognition. In 1999 she was a third team honoree.

Scott was voted the most valuable player in the MIAA this spring. A three-time All-MIAA player, she rewrote the Hope record book.

This season she hit 10 homeruns and had 81 total bases, both Hope records, ending with a .412 batting average and .836 slugging percentage.

In her career she hit 23 homeruns with 102 RBIs and 240 total bases, all records. She ended her career with a .990 fielding average committing just seven errors in 683 chances.

Scott's career was nearly ended in her freshman year when she suffered a serious knee injury. She was able to return the following year and began the season with a 29-game hitting streak.

This is the 12th All-American honor bestowed on a Hope softball player. Two others have been catchers, Deb Vashaw in 1992-93 and Amy Moeckel in 1996.
