Five land on NCAC All-Decade team

(L-R) Brie Berkopec, Bri Scrofano, Andrea Carella, Erica Evans and Rebecca Dyer were named to the second NCAC All-Decade Softball team.
(L-R) Brie Berkopec, Bri Scrofano, Andrea Carella, Erica Evans and Rebecca Dyer were named to the second NCAC All-Decade Softball team.

Denison had a league-best five student-athletes named to the North Coast Athletic Conference's 30th Anniversary Softball All-Decade team.  Former athletes Brie Berkopec '10, Andrea Carella '07, Erica Evans '11 and Bri Scrofano '08 earned spots on the list, while current senior Rebecca Dyer also represented the Big Red softball program.

Berkopec was a three-time All-NCAC selection, including back-to-back first-team honors in 2009 and 2010.  The standout catcher was also a two-time NFCA All-Region pick, earning first-team honors her senior year.  Berkopec currently holds conference records for single-season hits (72) and total bases (120), as well as career home runs with 25.  She also holds 12 school records, including career batting average (.416), slugging percentage (.701) and home runs.  Berkopec's seven single-season records and two single-game marks were all set in 2010, the year she garnered first-team all-region accolades.  That year, she also compiled a school-record 22-game hitting streak.

Carella was a two-time all-conference pic, earning first-team laurels in 2006.  After receiving first-team All-Region honors in 2006, Carella became the program's second NFCA All-American after garnering second-team laurels as a designated player.  That season, she posted career highs in hits (57), doubles (15), runs scored (22), RBIs (27), batting average (.429), slugging percentage (.571) and on-base percentage (.461).  Carella ranks tied for fourth in doubles (20) and fifth in batting average (.338). She's also seventh in RBIs (81) and slugging percentage (.444), eighth in games played (154), at bats (462) and hits (156), and ninth in both on-base percentage (.384) and total bases (205).

A two-time first-team All-NCAC selection, Evans was named the conference's Player of the Year in 2011 after leading the NCAC in slugging percentage (.717), total bases (86), assists (99) and home runs (10).  She was a two-time NFCA All-Region selection, earning first-team honors in 2010 after a breakout year.  That year, Evans had a .421 average with 64 hits, 41 RBIs and 47 runs, all career highs.  The four-year starter currently holds six school records, including career hits (187), total bases (306), runs scored (143) and RBIs (121).  Her career total bases mark is also a conference record.  In addition to her accolades on the field, Evans was also a two-time first-team Capital One Academic All-District selection.

Scrofano was a four-time All-NCAC honoree, garnering first-team recognition in 2007 and 2008.  During her senior year, Scrofano received NFCA All-Region third-team honors after a strong campaign inside the circle.  The former standout went 18-5 in 23 starts with 17 complete games.  She also tossed five shutouts in 142 inning pitched.  Scrofano still holds the school record for career starts with 70.  She also ranks in the top-five in eight other career pitching categories.  Her 46 wins, 438.1 innings, 1.64 ERA and .216 opponent average are second-best in school history, while her 14 shutouts and 335 strikeouts rank third. Scrofano is fourth all-time with 39 complete games and fifth in fewest earned runs allowed (103).

Dyer is a three-time All-NCAC selection, including first-team honors in 2011 and 2013.  In 2011, she became the fourth DU player in program history to be named conference Pitcher of the Year after shutting out all six conference teams she faced during the regular season.  Dyer also garnered third-team NFCA All-Region honors as a freshman. The senior pitcher enters the 2014 season ranked second in career starts (40) and strikeouts (354), while her 31 wins are tied for fifth on the school's all-time list. Dyer also co-holds the career shutouts records with 16 and tied the single-season record for complete games last season (19).

This group has helped Denison reach the NCAA Regional Tournament four times over the last eight years.  Carella and Scrofano were members of the 2006 squad that reached the NCAA postseason.  Two years later, Scrofano, Berkopec and Evans helped Denison reach the championship game of the 2008 NCAA Regional in Glassboro, N.J.  Berkopec and Evans made their second regional appearance in 2010, while Dyer was a vital part in DU's postseason berth in 2012.
