A tradition of excellence both on the field and in the classroom has always been a part of the East Texas Baptist University softball program. For the 2014 season, where ETBU finished fourth in the nation, nine players have been named NFCA (National Fastpitch Coaches Association) scholar-athletes.
In order to earn the NFCA scholar-athlete award you need a 3.5 grade point average or higher. ETBU also finished the 2014 season with a 3.38 team grade point average which is in the top 30 in NCAA Division III out of our 430 programs.
Being named a NFCA scholar-athlete are Sara Clements, Katy Hill, Kaitlyn Hollingshead, Krista Leal, Lacy Liles, Lacey Lindsey, Shelby Parker, Shelby Phillips, and Alyssa Romero.
ETBU finished with a program best 45 wins, fifth at the NCAA Division III National Tournament, and fourth in the final NFCA national poll.
