FRISCO – Sam Houston State softball's Lindsey McLeod added to her list of awards as a sophomore on Tuesday when she was named to the Southland Conference All-Academic first team, per a release by league officials.
The Austin (Westlake HS) native is majoring in Public Health and is one of 12 players from the league to be named to the first team and was an automatic selection to the squad following her selection to the CoSIDA Academic All-District team last month.
It is the first time McLeod has been named to the league's all-academic squad in what is her first year of eligibility. It also marks the 27th consecutive season that Sam Houston has had at least one players named to the SLC All-Academic team, dating back to 1991.
McLeod was stellar for the Bearkats in 2017 where she was named honorable mention all-SLC after ranking in the top 10 in the SLC in wins (12), saves (3), strikeouts (110), and opponent's batting average (.206) while also sporting a 3.24 ERA.
She twice equaled her career high in single-game strikeouts with 11 punchouts in wins over both Texas Southern and Texas A&M-Corpus Christi and was named the Southland Conference's Pitcher of the Week a pair of times.
