Scotton named preseason All Conference

Senior Shemekia Scotton was named to the Southern Conference Softball Preseason All-Conference First Team.  Scotton's preseason first team selection is the first for Western Carolina since Amber Hawwkins received the honor in 2010.

Last season, Scotton ranked second on the Catamount's team with a .331 batting average and third in home runs. Scotton put up 46 hits, had seven doubles and two triples and was a perfect 4-for-4 in stolen bases. She had 10 multiple hit games and five multiple RBI games in the season.

The Catamount Softball team was picked seventh in the preseason poll, voted on by the league coaches.  Western Carolina's seventh place ranking, in the Southern Conference preseason poll, is the highest ranking in the preseason since the Catamounts were picked sixth in 2008.
