The season may have ended in May, but the Angelina College’s 2017-2018 Lady Roadrunner softball team continues to earn recognition for its work in the classroom.

On Tuesday, the Lady ‘Runners were named to the 2017-2018 Easton/National Fastpitch Coaches Association Academic Teams after compiling a team-wide 3.230 grade-point average for the Fall 2017 and Spring 2018 semesters.

AC ranked 13th among the National Junior College Athletics Association’s Division I programs and 30th among all two-year schools.

In addition, six Lady Roadrunners earned their places on the Easton/NFCA Scholar Athletes list: Emilee Cernosek (Katy, TX), Morgan Conner (Groveton, TX), Riley Garrett (Katy, TX ), Megan Kirchhoff (Spring, TX), Taylor Lenggenhager (Austin, TX) and Nikki Whitehead (Kingwood, TX).

Angelina College softball coaches are Mark and Barbi Mattson.
