Slattery earns spot on Google Cloud Academic All-District Team
LOCK HAVEN, Pa. – Lock Haven University softball standout Bekah Slattery (Douglassville, Pa./Daniel Boone) has earned a spot on the 2019 Google Cloud Academic All-District Team.
Slattery, the Bald Eagles’ preseason All-American pitcher, earned a spot on the NCAA Division II District 2 Team. District 2 represents the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA), the Mountain East Conference (MEC) and the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC).
The 2019 Google Cloud Academic All-District® Softball Teams, selected by CoSIDA, recognizes the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances on the field and in the classroom. The Google Cloud Academic All-America® program separately recognizes softball honorees in four divisions — NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III and NAIA.
First-team Academic All-District® honorees advance to the Google Cloud Academic All-America® ballot. First-, second- and third-team (when selected) Academic All-America® honorees will be announced in June.
Most recently, Slattery powered the Bald Eagles on a remarkable postseason run. Behind Slattery’s dominance in the pitcher’s circle, Lock Haven won the 2019 PSAC Tournament and earned a bid to the 2019 NCAA Tournament.
This spot on the Google Cloud Academic All-District Team follows a number of All-Region honors for The Haven’s ace. Slattery was one of two pitchers named to the National Fastpitch Coaches’ Association (NFCA) Atlantic Region First Team, she was named the D2CCA Atlantic Region Pitcher of the Year and she earned First Team D2CCA Atlantic Region honors.
Slattery was named the PSAC Central Pitcher of the Year and earned First Team honors from the conference as well.
Her 316 strikeout this season lead all NCAA Division II pitchers and she entered the 2019 NCAA Championships with an ERA that ranked among the top-20 in DII. Slattery’s 856 career strikeouts sit behind only Hall of Famer Kristin Erb at LHU, and she’s No. 6 all-time in PSAC history.
