3 Students Earn Division Softball Awards
May 10, 2010
UT Dallas infielders Caysie Norum and Natalie Duran were selected to American Southwest Conference (ASC) All-East Division Softball Teams last week.
4 Honored in Tennis
Four members of the UT Dallas women’s tennis team were recognized by the American Southwest Conference.
Norum, a sophomore, led the Comets in hitting en route to earning a Second Team nod for the second consecutive season. Duran, who raised her batting average by nearly .200 points, was named an Honorable Mention recipient.
In addition, third baseman Courtney Kuebler won the division Newcomer of the Year Award.
The three student-athletes were the offensive lynchpins of a UT Dallas squad that tripled its win total from 2009.
Norum manufactured the second-best batting average (.477) in the ASC and roped a league-high 16 doubles.
Duran finished the 2010 season as the ASC's third-most proficient hitter (.469).
Kuebler tied Norum by totaling a team-best six home runs, including two against No. 6 East Texas Baptist on April 13.
Kuebler started in 39 of the Comets’ 40 games in 2010.
