Seward Softball Player on the Mark in Classroom

Seward County sophomore Stephanie Mark added yet another prestigious
award to already jam packed trophy case on Monday as the Lady Saints 1st
baseman for the past two seasons was named a Capital One Second Team
Academic All-American.  To take the award to the next level, Mark was
the only junior college student-athlete in the country to be given the
award and was one of just three sophomores to be named to the first or
second team. 


Mark was a 1st Team All-Region VI and 1st Team All-Jayhawk West
selection on the diamond for the Lady Saints this season.  She led
Seward County in batting average (.432), doubles (19), home runs (17),
and RBI's (70) among other categories.  While what mark did in 2013 was
impressive, it might be what she didn't do that was the most impressive.
In 215 at bats this season for Seward, Mark struck out just 5 times,
including an amazing stretch of  114 straight at bats without a
strikeout at the end of the Lady Saints regular season. 


She leaves Seward County as the all-time leader in hits (174), doubles
(45), and RBI's (122), shattering all of those marks throughout her
sophomore campaign, and finished second all-time in career batting
average (.447) and home runs (27). 


An Ogden, Utah native, Mark went into the Spring 2013 semester with a
3.83 GPA and is an Engineering major. 


The Capital One Academic All-American College Division Softball Team is
comprised of student-athletes from across the country who compete for
non-NCAA schools.  To be eligible for Academic All-American
consideration, a student-athlete must be a varsity starter or key
reserve, maintain a cumulative G.P.A. of 3.30 on a scale of 4.00, have
reached sophomore athletic and academic standings at his/her current
institution and be nominated by his/her sports information director.


To view the rest of the 2013 College Division Capital One Academic
All-American selections, see the list below.
