Four members of the McPherson College softball team earned KCAC honors this week.

Second-team selections were Ariel McGee and Amanda Darrow, while Emily Davis and Ciara Archer garnered honorable mention.

She had 72 putouts on the year, five assists and five errors for a fielding percentage of .939, highest among starting outfielders for McPherson. The Colorado native posted a batting average of .302 as she tabulated 35 hits in 116 at bats.

A newcomer to the team this season, Darrow was second on the team in batting average at .363. She was 33 of 91 at the plate and drew 27 total walks, 13 times by being hit by a pitch.  Darrow led MC in slugging percentage at .615 and totaled a team-leading six home runs.

Davis transferred back home after the McPherson native spent two years at Cowley County.  She posted the squad's top batting average at .410 and was 10th in the conference.  Davis also led the 'Dogs in hits with 43.

One of two honorable mention pitchers, Archer was Mac's ace this season, throwing in 100 2/3 innings in 21 different games, starting 13.  The freshman posted a 7-9 record in the regular season with an ERA of 3.69. She held her opponents to a .307 batting average and logged 41 strikeouts in her time at the mound.
