ALL-LMC SOFTBALL AWARDS ANNOUNCED
MADISON, Wis. -- The All-Lake Michigan Conference softball awards for the 2006 season have just been announced by the conference office.
The awards include a 15-player All-LMC team, followed by honorable mention, a nine-player All-Rookie team as well as player, rookie and coach of the year awards. All awards are voted on by the conference's head coaches.

Marian College's Erin Minger (Gurnee, Ill / Warren Township) was named Lake Michigan Conference player of the year, marking the fourth consecutive year a Sabre has won the award. In conference games, the junior 3B was second in batting average (.469), third in on-base percentage (.500) and fifth in hits (23). Minger led Marian to a forth-place finish in the LMC with a 9-7 record, and 14-23 overall.

Rookie of the year honors went to Edgewood College's Jamie Kurt (Dane, Wis. / Lodi). Kurt was third in batting average (.453), led the league in slugging percentage (.774), and was fifth in on-base percentage (.482). Kurt also was fourth in hits with 24, second in RBIs with 22, had eight doubles (second), and led the league in homeruns with three. Her 41 total bases were also a LMC best.

JP Richards was named LMC coach of the year for the second consecutive season, leading Edgewood (29-11, 16-0 LMC) to its second consecutive conference championship, and the #1 seed in the upcoming LMC tournament. Edgewood had the first undefeated season in LMC softball since MSOE (12-0) did so in 1998. The 16 wins mark the most in LMC softball history.

MARIAN SOFTBALL PICKED AS FAVORITE IN PRESEASON COACHES' POLL
MADISON, Wis. -- The Marian College softball team has been picked to win the 2006 Lake Michigan Conference championship according to the preseason coaches' poll released today.

Marian received six of the nine first place votes to tally 77 points. The Sabres (28-16, 10-4 LMC) finished in a three-way tie for second place last season, and lost in the LMC tournament championship game by a run in extra innings, coming up just short of a NCAA bid.

Concordia University (17-18, 10-4) was picked second with 68 points, and also received a first place vote. Last season's regular season and tournament champions, Edgewood College (30-6, 12-2), received 59 points and a first place vote for third. Wisconsin Lutheran College (17-18, 10-4) tallied 57 points and the remaining first place vote, and is tabbed for a fourth place finish.

Lakeland College (10-27, 4-10) totaled 46 points for fifth place, and Alverno College (14-24, 5-9) had 36 points for sixth. Finishing out the final three spots are league-newcomer Dominican University (9-31), Milwaukee School of Engineering (7-27, 4-10), and Maranatha Baptist Bible College (7-30, 1-13).
