Three Honored on Softball All-ODAC
FOREST, VA – On Monday, the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) released its 2017 Softball All-Conference teams. For the first time since 2014 (when there were four), the Randolph College softball team had three players selected for these teams. Lindsey Chaney, Hunter Glavé, and Becca Montgomery all found themselves picked on the third team.
Chaney was selected as a third-team pitcher for the second-straight season. Chaney had a tremendous season as the top pitcher for the WildCats. She finished the year with nine wins and a save. Chaney had the sixth-most strikeouts in the conference and ended the year with a 2.70 ERA. What was most impressive about the year was how she started the ODAC schedule. Chaney took on three of the top teams in five days, with two of the teams being ranked in the top 15 in the country. She went 2-1, giving up only one earned run over 20 innings.
Glavé finishes her career with her third All-ODAC nod and second Third-Team selection. The first baseman had an outstanding final season. She posted a .391 batting average over 43 hits. Glavé led the 'Cats with 10 doubles and 29 RBI, while tying for the lead with four home runs. The doubles put her in ninth in the conference, while the RBI and home run counts tied her for 10th. However, those hits gave her an impressive slugging percentage of .609. That mark put her at seventh in the league. For her career, she leaves Randolph with the most home runs (23), most RBI (136), and the highest slugging percentage (.658). She is also second in hits, walks, total bases, runs scored, doubles, and on-base percentage.
Montgomery earned her first-career All-ODAC nod after posting a stellar season as a catcher. The junior hit .304 with 31 total knocks on the year. She came up big in clutch situations, as she drove in 25 runners on the year, including herself on two occasions. Despite her work at the plate, her biggest help came from behind. She played almost every game at catcher and had only one error on the season. She also caught eight runners stealing, which led the league.
