KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) has announced the 2018 Softball All-America teams, selected by the NAIA All-America committee. The All-America teams are comprised of First Team, Second Team and Honorable Mention selections.
Midland University’s Jaylee Hinrichs was selected to the Second Team as an at-large pitcher. This season she had a 23-11 record with 2 saves while pitching a new school-record, 223.2 innings. She also demolished the school’s strikeout record with 317 batters struck out. Her ERA was an even 2.00.
“I am very happy for Jaylee. It’s a well-earned honor,” commented Midland softball head coach Mike Heard. “In our program we stress the importance of focusing on team results, servant leadership and how to make other around us better. We believe a focus on the right things is also the best path to individual success. Jaylee has worked hard and grown tremendously the past few years – both as a player and as a person. She should be proud of that. I’m sure she’d be the first to tell you these awards are only possible with the help of great teammates.”
