Seven Athenas earn All-SCIAC honors

PASADENA, Calif. – The Claremont-Mudd-Scripps softball team had seven athletes earning all-conference honors from the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC), highlighted by sophomore Anna Gurr (CMC) tabbed as Pitcher of the Year, as announced on May 3. Senior Tara Robinson (CMC) and sophomore Briana Halle (CMC) represented CMS on the First Team and seniors Molly Rubidoux (CMC) and Katie Savard (CMC), sophomore Carly Roleder (CMC), and freshman Abigail Metsch (SCR) were voted onto the Second Team.

This is Gurr's second All-SCIAC honor after being named to the Second Team in the 2015 season. She led the conference in ERA with a staggering 0.80 in 96.2 innings pitched including eight shutouts. In addition to her 12 wins, Gurr recorded four saves, leading the conference in that category as well.

Robinson caps off her career with her fourth All-SCIAC selection, this year as an outfielder on the First Team. She is third in SCIAC with a .436 batting average and second in stolen bases at 13. As a lefty slapper, Robinson has also amassed 14 RBI on the season; double that of the seven she tallied in 2015.

Earning her first All-SCIAC honor, Halle was selected as the First Team designated player. She ranks fourth on the team and 12th in conference at a .386 average. She leads the Athenas with 26 RBI in SCIAC play. Halle recorded five RBI in two games this season: the 10-7 win over Redlands (Mar. 4) and the 9-0 win over Whittier (Apr. 23).

Rubidoux earns her first all-conference award in the 2016 season with a 1.62 ERA and nine wins in SCIAC play. She averages 3.5 strikeouts per game and has two complete game shutouts. Rubidoux has pitched as much this season as the three previous seasons combined, and with more success.

Savard also earns her fourth All-SCIAC of her career as the Second Team's first baseman. She has started every game thus far and boasts a .398 average with a .566 slugging percentage. Savard leads CMS and is second in SCIAC with nine doubles. As the team's steady first baseman, Savard has not committed an error all season.

As the Second Team's shortstop, Roleder earns her second all-conference selection with a .346 average. Once again, she leads the team in homeruns, this year with three during SCIAC play. Roleder ties Savard, each with 11 extra base hits and good for eighth in conference.

Finally, Metsch is one of five freshmen on the All-SCIAC teams and represents CMS as the third baseman on the Second Team. She has had seven multi-hit games during the conference season and is one of six CMS starters with batting averages over .300. Metsch hit a homerun, a triple and three doubles for a .424 slugging percentage.

The Athenas earned the No. 2 seed in the upcoming SCIAC Postseason Tournament hosted by La Verne. CMS faces off with Redlands at 12:30 p.m. on Friday, May 6. More details will follow in the tournament preview.
