NFCA All-District Teams Release

 

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. Sophomore pitcher Brooke Loudermilk (Locust Grove, Ga.) continues to add to her impressive collection of awards in 2008 as she has been named to the Second-Team of the Louisville Slugger/NFCA South Region All-District team.

 

Already the two-time Southern Conference Pitcher of the Year, the 2008 Southern Conference Tournament Most Outstanding Player and an ESPN the Magazine Academic All-District Third Team selection, Loudermilk adds her second South Region All-District Second-Team selection after a tremendous sophomore season.

 

This year Loudermilk compiled an 18-8 record with a 1.87 ERA, .189 opposing batting average and posted 242 strikeouts in 44 appearances and 194.1 innings. She also posted a 5-0 record with a 1.01 ERA, 48 strikeouts, seven walks and a .165 opposing batting average over 35.2 innings in the Southern Conference Tournament to lead Chattanooga to its ninth tournament title.

 

Nationally, she ranked 10th in the nation with a team-leading five saves and finished 28th in Strikeouts per Seven Innings with an 8.70 average. Her 1.87 ERA placed 70th in the country while her 18 victories were good for 76th.

 

The Locust Grove, Georgia native recorded seven double-digit strikeout performances in 2008, including a record breaking, and then tying, 15 strikeouts against Bowling Green on February 23 and again on March 21 vs. UNC Greensboro. Loudermilk broke her own record of 14 which she accomplished twice as a freshman and two more time this season.

 

In addition to superior strikeout performances, she also registered two one-hit complete game shutouts, including a 2-0 victory at Furman on April 19 in which she came within one strike of a perfect game.

 

With her selection, Loudermilk becomes the eighth different member of the Lady Mocs, and 12th overall, to be named to a South Region All-District team since JD Staton first earned Second-Team honors in 1997 in the fourth year of the program.

 

She is the fourth individual in the 15-year history of Chattanooga softball to be chosen twice in a career and the first to earn the honor in each of her first two years. She joins current pitching coach Lacey Swarthout and Lady Mocs Hall of Famer Beth Alexander as the only back-to-back selections in program history and all-time home run leader Melissa Ramirez as a two-time selection. Ramirez is the only other Chattanooga freshman to be named to the team.

 

Loudermilk is now eligible to be considered for All-America honors which will be announced by the NFCA at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Wednesday, May 28. Results can be found on www.nfca.org.
