COLLEG STATION -- Texas A&M junior softball player Amanda Scarborough was named to the 2007 CoSIDA ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America second team for the University Division, the organization announced this week.
“I am very proud of Amanda and all that she has accomplished on and off the field,” said Aggie head coach Jo Evans. “She works hard not only at getting better as a player, but she sets high expectations for herself in her academics, as well. Amanda is a great example of what a student-athlete should strive to become.”
Scarborough, a pitcher from Magnolia, Texas, helped lead the nationally ranked Texas A&M softball team to its sixth consecutive NCAA postseason appearance including the Aggies’ first trip to the Women’s College World Series since 1988. In addition, Scarborough earned Co-Big 12 Pitcher of the Year and All-Big 12 and Academic All-Big 12 first team accolades.
In the circle for A&M, Scarborough owns a 26-8 record, striking-out 220 batters in 212.0 innings of work while allowing just 40 walks. She holds a .335 average at the plate, while hitting a team-leading 11 doubles and six triples, along with seven home runs and 46 runs driven in.
