Softball – Six JCCC players earn postseason honors

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – Six members of the 2014 Johnson County Community College softball team have earned postseason recognition for the play on the field. Three players, sophomore Zoe Price and freshmen Hayden Roberts and Caitlin Martin, were selected as All-East Jayhawk Conference performers. In addition freshmen Kelsey Brady, Sam Kreissler and Mackenzie Skeens, along with Price and Roberts, were selected as All-Region VI/District D performers.

Johnson County head coach Aubree Brattin was voted by her peers as the East Jayhawk Conference Coach of the Year after leading the Lady Cavaliers to a 33-8 record, a No. 7 national ranking and an East Jayhawk Conference championship.

Price was a first-team selection on both teams. In 2014, she was a workhorse in the circle for Johnson County. She finished the season 21-2 overall, with a 1.45 ERA and 119 strikeouts in 140.1 innings of work. Her 21 wins tie the eighth-best season in team history. For her career, Price was 41-9 overall, with 247 strikeouts in 327.1 innings pitched. Her 41 wins rank sixth all-time, and ranks seventh in both strikeouts and innings pitched. Price was also productive with her bat. She hit .386 (34-for-88) with 10 doubles, four homers and 23 RBI. She led the team in home runs, and tied for the lead in doubles.

Roberts earned honorable mention in the conference at first base, and was a first-team selection in the region/district. She hit .300 on the season (36-for-120), with seven doubles, a triple, home run and led the team with 25 driven in. With her glove, Roberts posted a .980 fielding percentage, committing just seven errors in 253 chances.

Martin earned honorable mention all-conference at third base after hitting .350 (28-for-80) with six doubles, a triple, two homers and nine RBI. She also had nine stolen bases.

Brady and Kreissler were both first team selections on the region/district team. Brady was selected as an outfielder, and Kreissler as a utility player. Brady hit at a .407 clip (50-for-123) with seven doubles, five triples and 19 RBI. Her five triples led the team and tie for 17th on JCCC’s season chart. She also had a team-best 14 stolen bases. In the field, Brady posted a fielding percentage of .976, making just two errors all year.

Kreissler had the second-best batting average on the team at .417 (58-for-139). Her 58 hits led the squad, and she tied for the team lead with 10 doubles. She also drove in 24 runners and stole 10 bases, both second-best on the team. Kreissler also had a .964 fielding percentage.
