GREENWOOD – Senior outfielder Kelli McCormack was named a first-team D2CCA All-Southeast Region performer on Thursday, becoming the first D2CCA all-region selection in program history and the first all-region player for the Bearcats since 2007.
The Canton, Georgia native was one of the top hitters in the region in 2019. She led the Bearcats in batting average (.431), hits (69), runs (35), doubles (13), and steals (11).
McCormack is the PBC's current leader in batting average and is second in the league in hits. Her .431 average is the highest for any Bearcat since Ashley Tomlinson's .441 average in 2003. She was a first-team all-PBC selection this season after receiving first-team all-conference recognition during her freshman campaign in 2016.
The senior, who was the only player in the PBC to record at least 10 doubles, 10 steals, 20 RBI, and hit over .350, had 22 multi-hit games and 10 games with multiple RBI. She started all 46 games in left field, bringing her streak of consecutive starts to 119.
McCormack is the 10th player to earn all-region honors since Lander joined the NCAA in 1992-93.
