Secaras headlines All-NCAC as Player of the Year

Denison softball All-NCAC selections

CLEVELAND, Ohio – The North Coast Athletic Conference chose six Denison softball players for their all-conference teams on Wednesday morning, highlighted by three first-team selections and senior Lauren Secaras as the NCAC Player of the Year.

Leaving Denison as the conference's all-time leader in career RBIs (143), total bases (329) and tied for home runs with Denison's Brie Berkopec (2007-10), Secaras also became the only player in program history to earn All-NCAC first-team accolades in each of her four years at DU. Helping the Big Red finish the season at 26-10 overall, Secaras led the team with 38 runs batted in, eight home runs, and added 33 runs scored while hitting .400 for the year with a .742 slugging percentage.  She also tallied a 4-1 record in the pitching circle, recording 30 strikeouts and two saves with a 3.64 earned run average.

After receiving second-team honors the previous two seasons as a pitcher, senior Sarah Herold joined the first-team squad as a utility player in 2018 due to her success at the plate and in the circle. As a pitcher, Herold led the conference with 13 wins over 119.2 innings of work and a 1.81 ERA, while totaling a career-high 108 strikeouts. As a hitter, the Orland Park, Ill. native compiled a .354 batting average on 45 hits with 24 RBIs and 35 runs scored.

Also making her debut on the All-NCAC first-team, sophomore Emilie Fisher garnered recognition with a .377 batting average, good for second on the team, while driving in 16 runs, scoring 33 of her own and leading the team with 21 walks. In a 13-3 win against Hiram on April 21, Fisher tied a season-high with three runs batted in along with two runs scored.

Juniors Laura Bagan and Colleen Hoffman earned second-team honors for the Big Red, marking Bagan's third-straight All-NCAC selection. In her third year at Denison, Bagan finished the season with a .333 batting average, 32 RBIs, six home runs and a career-best 14 doubles. For Hoffman, she enjoyed her best season yet in 2018, tallying a 9-4 record in the pitching circle with 52 strikeouts, a 3.21 earned run average and the first no-hitter of her career in a 22-1 win over Hiram on April 21.

Joining Bagan and Hoffman on the All-NCAC second-team was sophomore catcher Lindsey Clemson. Receiving honorable mention honors as a freshman, the Canton, Ohio native took a step forward in 2018, hitting .381 for the season with 21 runs scored and 18 RBIs. Starting all 36 games behind the plate for the Big Red, Clemson recorded a perfect 1.000 fielding percentage and threw out five runners this season.

Totaling a conference record of 13-3, the Big Red recorded their 15th NCAC Tournament appearance this season, finishing as the runner-up.
