GREENSBORO, N.C.—Mars Hill softball team member Natalie Haithcox was named to the 2012 North Carolina Collegiate Sports Information Association (NCCSIA) College Division All-State Softball Team, which was released Thursday.
Haithcox turned in a huge senior season and set school-records for slugging percentage (.966), homers (18), on-base percentage (.532) and walks (32). The 2012 Daktronics Third Team All-American hit .415 with 46 RBI and led NCAA Division II in slugging percentage.
The ninth annual team consists of non-NCAA Division I student-athletes from North Carolina colleges and universities. Sports information professionals from across the state submitted the nominees, and NCCSIA members voted for the all-state team. The team consists of two starting pitchers, one catcher, four infielders, three outfielders, one designated player and one utility player.
