  • Trice named softball All-American Trice named softball All-American

    Kamara Trice's historic career added another accolade on Friday, May 29, when the NAIA national office announced the 2015 NAIA Softball All-American teams.
    Trice became FHU softball's third All-American and first as a position player after being named to the second team.
    Former Lady Lions Tarrah Tucker (2009) and Sarah Elizabeth Cousar (2013) were previously named to the second team, both as pitchers. Trice was one of five infielders selected as part of the 20-player second team.
    The Henderson native hit .432 this season with 12 home runs and 52 RBIs. She ranked among the NAIA leaders in nine statistical categories, including 10th in total bases per game (2.6) and 15th in slugging percentage (.818).
    Trice capped her career at Freed-Hardeman with her name beside multiple career records. She is the program's all-time leader in batting average (.387), on-base percentage (.486), slugging percentage (.686) and RBIs (134) as well as the single-season leader in the same categories. She also won a career-high 11 games in the circle this season.
    American Midwest Conference Player of the Year Carly Spalding of Columbia joined Trice as a second-team selection. Missouri Baptist's Payton Anderson was an honorable mention selection. Oklahoma City led the way with four first-team selections.
