Sowers tabbed for Central team award
PELLA - Marshalltown High School graduate Whitney Sowers received the Outstanding Defensive Player Award for the Central College softball team at its annual awards banquet.
Sowers, a 2011 MHS grad, was the starting third baseman for the Dutch during the spring season. Central qualified for the NCAA Division III national tournament but went 0-2 in the eight-team, double-elimination event to end the season 32-10 overall.
Sowers finished the spring with a .344 batting average, 31 runs scored, two home runs and 27 RBIs in earning second-team all-Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference honors for the second year in a row.
