MCC frosh Robinson is 2nd-team All-American
The most highly decorated player in the history of Marshalltown Community College’s softball program still has her sophomore season ahead of her.
MCC freshman center fielder Shaena Robinson has been named to the National Junior College Athletic Association’s All-American second team as announced Wednesday, supplanting Hally Lenzine at the top of the list of honorees.
Lenzine hit 29 home runs in her sophomore campaign in 2012, earning third-team All-American honors from the NJCAA. Now Robinson, who led the Iowa Community College Athetlic Conference in home runs (16) and all three hitting ratios, has another year to raise the bar.
“I am really excited to see Shaena receive the post season honors she has earned,” said MCC head coach Garland Shirley. “When a player like her arrives and works as hard as she has to be successful, it is good to see it pay off. She does all the right things on the field and in the classroom and we hope her example sets a standard for our program that everyone strives for.”
Robinson, a Gardnerville, Nev., native, finished the season atop the ICCAC with 16 home runs, a .493 batting average, .551 on-base percentage and a .971 slugging percentage. She ranked in the top 20 nationally with all three ratios as the Tigers ended the season with a 23-19 record.
