C-USA Announces All-Conference Teams
The record for most spots on C-USA teams was set in 2006 (Marshall’s first year in C-USA), when six positions were secured. The Herd has now set the record at seven this season. When the team was a part of the MAC, the team secured seven positions in 2003.
Marshall is the only team in C-USA to have three freshmen on the C-USA freshmen team. Between C-USA first team, second team and freshmen team, Marshall and UAB have earned the most positions with a total of seven – freshman Kaelynn Greene earned two selections.
Greene earned her spot as one-of-three outfielders on the First Team All-Conference, leading the team in multiple categories in conference action – batting average (.354), hits (28) and stolen bases (11). She along with freshmen Shaelynn Braxton and Raquel Escareno all sit on the All-Freshman Team. Braxton and Escareno are tied in home runs in conference play with 5 apiece and trail each other by one to lead the team in total bases – Escareno, 33, Braxton, 32.
Seniors Jazmine Valle, Ashley Gue and Andi Williamson hold positions on the Second Team All-Conference. Valle is one-of-four infielders selected. In conference, she and Greene are the only two players to hit triples. Valle trails Greene in batting average with a .339 in conference, holds second place in doubles (4) and walks (14) and leads the team in on-base percentage (.500). Gue, one-of-three outfielders on the second team, has left an impression on conference coaches with her speed, on-base consistency and sacrifice hits. She has 11 stolen bases in conference action and leads the team with seven sacrifice hits, while posting a .421 on-base percentage, the second-highest mark. Williamson is one-of-two pitchers on the second team. She leads the conference in wins (13) and innings pitched (121.2). She struck out 120 opponents during the regular season and has owned the circle for Marshall.
Valle and Williamson have been honored with Second Team All-Conference recognition more than once. It is Valle’s third time (2010, 2012, 2013) and Williamson’s second (2012, 2013), but for the other four of Marshall’s squad it is the first time ever receiving the honor.
