Scarborough Named Candidate for Lowe’s Senior Class Award

By  | 

COLLEGE STATION -- Senior All-American Amanda Scarborough was listed as one of 30 of the nation’s best college softball players who have been selected as the 2008 candidates in the softball division of the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award, the association announced today.

“Amanda has become a great leader,” A&M head coach Jo Evans said. “She works hard every day and is a great teammate. As good as she already is, I am impressed with the way she continues to push herself to improve, whether it be on the mound or at the plate. She has great enthusiasm for the game and is a complete player. She has been a huge part of our success in the past three years. She also takes great pride in playing softball for Texas A&M. She works hard on the field but she also takes care of her job in the classroom as well.”

To date Scarborough owns a 1.45 ERA through 102 appearances collecting 27 complete game shutouts along the way. To complement her stellar pitching performances, Scarborough is a consistent threat at the plate. She carries a career .356 batting average, driving in 124 RBIs off 42 doubles, six triples and 25 homeruns.

The award, presented to NCAA Division I student-athletes each year in eight sports, focuses on the “Four C’s” of classroom, character, community and competition.

This marks the second year for the softball division of the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award. Arizona outfielder Caitlin Lowe was the inaugural winner in 2007.

From the list of 30 nominees, a national media committee will select 10 finalists for the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award in late March 2008. Those ten names will be placed on the official ballot for a nationwide vote that will include coaches, media and fans. The award winner will be announced and recognized at the 2008 NCAA Women’s College World Series in Oklahoma City.
