Nola Mountain has been recognized for her outstanding work on and off the field for the University of Maryland Eastern Shore women’s softball team.
The sophomore infielder will soon be back home and suiting up for the 2003 Delta Heat senior women’s team after a terrific year down south with the Hawks in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC).
Mountain was named to the MEAC All-Second Team thanks to ranking third on the team with a .323 batting average and a .372 on-base percentage. She leads the Hawks in stolen bases with 18 on 20 attempts and has not gone more than two consecutive games without a hit all season and boasted an eight-game hitting streak from April 16 to 26.
The pre-med student is also thriving in the classroom.
She was among nine Hawks to earn MEAC All-Academic honours. Sophomore, junior and senior student-athletes in the MEAC with a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or higher are eligible to be selected.
The Seaquam Softball Academy product took her career south of the border on a athletic/academic scholarship.
