Gregg named to all-Conference Carolinas First team

HIGH POINT, N.C. --- Lees-McRae College senior Laurel Gregg (Mars Hill, N.C.) has garnered all-Conference Carolinas Softball honors for the second straight season, earning first-team honors, announced league officials Thursday.

Gregg put together a sensational season in conference play, posting a 1.42 earned run average to earn a spot on the first team. The Mars Hill, N.C. native recorded 45 strikeouts and held batters to a .183 clip in 59 innings of work in league play. Gregg tossed four shutouts this season, including a four-inning no-hitter in the opener against St. Augustine's to go along with two one-hitters.

Lees-McRae is expected to return eight letter-winners from this year's squad, including rising juniors Karli Robb (Hayes, Va.), Lori Fulmer (Prosperity, S.C.), Hollie Crickenberger (Boydton, Va.), Jessica Smith (Gastonia, N.C.), and Alison Armstrong (Bellingham, N.C.).
