Champions Again

The ASU Rambelles softball team continued its winning ways in 2014, posting a 41-16 overall record and nabbing its sixth Lone Star Conference Tournament Championship.

The Rambelles and head coach Travis Scott lost the LSC regular season title to No. 1 West Texas A&M on the season’s final weekend. Just one week later, ASU earned redemption by defeating West Texas A&M on its home field to win the LSC Tournament. That guaranteed ASU’s eighth straight trip to the NCAA Division II South Central Regional. The Rambelles hosted regionals for the fifth time, but were defeated by St. Mary’s.

Senior outfielder Morgan Spearman (Kennedale) was named LSC Player of the Year and earned All-America first team honors from the National Fastpitch Coaches’ Association. She was also a nominee for the 2014 NCAA D-II Woman Athlete of the Year Award presented by The Collegiate Women Sports Awards. Sophomore utility player Darian Dunn (Frisco) was also a first team All-America selection while Micherie Koria (San Diego, Calif.) was named to the All-America third team.

Spearman and Dunn both had outstanding seasons as they added their names to the NCAA D-II record book. Spearman’s 80 runs scored and Dunn’s 95 RBI both rank fifth overall for the highest single-season totals in NCAA D-II history.

Six talented seniors finished out their ASU careers in 2014, including Spearman, Carly Peters (San Antonio), Mary Kate McKay (Madill, Okla.), Kelci Garza (Little Elm), Luz’Ce Baca (San Angelo) and Sandra Serna (Albuquerque, N.M.).
