Chadron State College’s Angela Jay has been selected to the Capital One Academic All-America Division II Second Team, the College Sports Information Directors of America announced.
Jay, a senior center fielder and catcher from Victoria, British Columbia, has a 3.89 GPA in physical education and health. She was recently named to the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference All-Academic First Team, as well as being first team all-conference.
Jay started 96 consecutive games and finished her career with the highest fielding percentage in school history. This season, she hit .342 and had an on-base percentage of .403 to lead the team. She also stole four bases and struck out just nine times in 158 at bats. She also scored a team-high 36 runs.
For her career, she hit .352, the third highest career batting average in CSC history, and also ranks in the school’s top 10 in slugging percentage (.542), on-base percentage (.399), runs scored (79), most hits (113), most doubles (26) and most total bases (174).
The RMAC was well represented on the Academic All-America Team. In addition to Jay, Stephanie Janes of Fort Lewis and Molly Clark of Metro State are on the second team. Colorado Mines’ Sarah Lustgraaf was a third team selection.
Jay is the second Chadron State softball player to earn Academic All-American laurels since the program joined the Division II ranks in 2007. Casey Williams was a second team selection in 2009.
