Hackett, Barlow and Correa Named All-Region For Bowdoin Softball
BRUNSWICK, Maine - Three Bowdoin College softball players have been named All-Region performers by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association.
Senior 2B Amy Hackett (Bangor, Maine) was named as a Second Team selection while junior 1B Gen Barlow (Norwich, Conn.) and C Casey Correa (Stamford, Conn.) earned Third Team honors.
Hackett batted .347 with a team-record seven triples and 36 RBI this spring for the Polar Bears and closed out her career eighth all-time at Bowdoin with 139 hits. In addition to the runs scored mark of 100, her 16 career triples and 52 career walks are both school records while her 47 stolen bases are second all-time and 92 RBI are fourth. She was also named All-New England by the New England Softball Coaches Association and All-New England Small College Athletic Conference earlier this month.
Barlow record-breaking campaign that saw her lead the NESCAC in RBI (49) and doubles (14) while ranking second in runs (46) and walks (20) and third in home runs (7) and total bases (96). Her .417 batting average ranked eighth in the league and is the highest for a Polar Bear since Danielle Chagnon batted .426 in 2006. Barlow shattered the record for total bases in a season, besting Kristie Miller's mark of 85 and also beat Miller's single-season record of 44 RBI. She also tied Miller in single-season home runs, tied Clare Ronan in single-season doubles and edged Shavonne Lord (19) in single-season walks. Her 46 runs scored also broke the mark of 34 formerly held by Jayme Woogerd. She grabbed First Team All-NESCAC honors earlier this month.
Casey Correa enjoyed a breakout sophomore campaign that saw the backstop bat .394 with seven home runs, tying the school record also knotted by Gen Barlow. Her 40 RBI are the third-most in a single-season in school history while her 82 total bases are fourth-most in a year. She also caught 10 runners stealing this spring. Correa was also named All-New England and All-New England Small College Athletic Conference last week.
