Despite the Penn State softball team’s 1-3 performance this weekend, infielders Alyssa Renwick and Kailyn Johnson were recognized for their individual success this weekend by being named to the Carolina Classic All-Tournament team on Sunday night.
The junior South Carolina native Renwick was one of the strongest performers at the plate this weekend for the Lions. Contributing with a .500 batting average in the four games, Renwick was extremely consistent and had a total of seven hits in the tournament. She also tallied four runs on the weekend, one in each of the team’s games. After starting the tournament further down in the batting order, her play earned her the number two spot because of her consistent average and ability to put the ball in play.
A fixture at first base, Johnson earned her spot on the team with a solid .307 batting average and for working three walks on the weekend. She also exploded with offense in the loss to North Carolina on Sunday afternoon with a 2 hit performance, including a solo homer. The dinger was the tenth of her career and the first home run of the season for Penn State.
These two will be leading the Lions in the upcoming Citrus Classic in Kissimmee, Fl., which begins this Friday with a doubleheader against University of Virginia and Long Island.
