BURLINGTON, N.C. – Lees-McRae College softball player Kara Cunningham (Indian Trail, N.C.) was named to the Conference Carolinas All-Tournament Team Sunday afternoon at the conclusion of the conference tournament.
Cunningham put together a solid effort in LMC's three games in Burlington over the weekend posting a 4.34 ERA in nine-and-two-third innings pitched and added a save. The Indian Trail, N.C. native also produced offensively going 4-for-10 at the plate with a home run, two doubles and a pair of RBI.
Cunningham's play in the tournament should come as no shocker to Bobcat fans as she was an important player for Lees-McRae both in the circle and at the plate in 2017. Cunningham led all LMC pitchers in wins (7), saves (2), complete games (13), innings pitched (147.2), strikeouts (114) and ERA (2.80). Offensively, Cunningham produced as well hitting .290 with two home runs and 21 RBI during her sophomore season.
