Clinton, S.C. – Jonnie Petree and Kiley Kross of the Presbyterian College Softball team received postseason honors from the Big South Conference that were announced by the league office on Tuesday afternoon. Petree was named to the All-Conference Second Team and was selected to represent PC on the All-Academic team. Kross was named to the Big South All-Freshman team.

 

Petree set a new Blue Hose Division I single-season record with 34 stolen bases during her senior season. She also led the team with her .356 batting average, .411 on-base percentage, and 28 runs scored. Her 58 hits on the season, tied for the most on the team with Ansley Wilbanks, were one short of tying the PC D-I single-season record of 59 hits in a season. Petree set new career highs this season in nearly every offensive category while starting 51 games at second base. An English major and a Media Studies and History minor, she holds a cumulative 3.79 GPA.

 

Kross paced the Blue Hose this season with 25 RBI on the campaign and was one of only four Blue Hose to start all 53 games this season. She batted .274 on the year and her slugging percentage was the third highest on the team at .363. Kross collected the second-most extra base hits for PC, 10 (8 2B, 2 HR).
