All-conference honors were announced recently by the Mid-South Conference. And, in the first year as a member, athletes from St. Catharine College were well represented.

Heading the honors list were baseball player Travis Adams and softball player Sharonda Mangan.

In addition, seven softball players received honorable mention and five baseball players were on the honorable mention list.

Three Patriots were also named to the baseball all-academic team for the Mid-South.

Adams, a junior pitcher from Allen County-Scottsville High School, has compiled a 7-3 record with two saves. Adams led the conference this season in ERA with a 2.52 mark.

In 60 2/3 innings pitched, the right-hander allowed 53 hits. He walked 17 batters and struck out 46. Opposing batters hit .228 against him.

Mangan’s selection to all-conference came from her prowess at the plate and on the mound. Offensively the junior pitcher/designated hitter batted .400 in the regular season.

She led the Patriots in home runs with 10 and in runs batted in with 37. Mangan had an 11-10 record pitching, which tied her with Amber Matteoli for the most wins on the team.

Selected as honorable mention all-conference from the Patriots’ softball team were Megan Cheuvront, Casey Crouch, Justine Paddock, Kasie Prather, Emily Bucklew, Mary Kate Hayes and Amber Matteoli.

Honorable mention all-conference for baseball included Brian Jones, who led the conference in hitting with a .492 average, Patrick Jones, Timmy Paxton, Justin Witt and Shane Young. Chris Smith, Adam Blair and Brian Jones were named to the all-academic team.
