Sophomore Kayla Ouellet receives A-Sun all-tournament accolades
After being the top hitter during the season, sophomore Kayla Ouellet continued her pace for the JU softball team in the postseason en route to earning Atlantic Sun Conference All-Tournament honors.
The Orlando native batted a team-best .417 (5-12) in three starts while driving in the game-winning run in JU’s extra-inning win over Campbell on May 13.
“Kayla elevated her play in the tournament and played a key role in our post season,” said JU head coach Amanda Lehotak. “We knew having Kayla back and healthy would be a big part of our potential success which turned out to be the case.”
In 2010, Ouellet earned first team all-conference honors after finishing the season with a team-best 66 hits, 32 runs and 16 stolen bases. She jumped to the team lead in hitting after a 10-for-21 effort (.476) with six RBI in five games at the USF Under Armour Invitational (3/5-7). Ouellet had a season-high three hits on four occasions during the first week of March and drove in two runs in four straight games (3/6-10).
