SCC’s 2016 softball team recognized for academic excellence

softballregionalthumb
The 2016 Storm Softball team won the Regional tournament last May.

Southeast Community College’s 2015-2016 softball team is being recognized for its academic team honors by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association. Out of 32 junior college teams, SCC ranked 14th with a combined grade-point average of 3.374. In addition, nine SCC softball players had GPAs of 3.5 or higher.

“Storm softball strives for excellence in the classroom and on the field,” said head coach Bob Ginsburg. “Team members work hard for their grades and work together for the team to achieve those heights.”

The rankings and honors recognize the academic excellence of softball teams across seven membership divisions; NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III, NAIA, Junior College, High School (unweighted) and High School (weighted).

Last spring, the Storm earned their first-ever regional title, defeating Central Community College and North Platte Community College. It’s Ginsburg’s fourth year coaching the Storm. He’s looking forward to this season.

“This team is not just learning from wins and losses on the field,” he said. “They dedicate themselves in the classroom as they prepare for success when transferring to four-year colleges, and as they prepare themselves for their futures.”

The following Storm softball players had a GPA of 3.5 or higher:

Brooke Brestel, Lincoln Southwest

Savannah Grabowski, Beatrice

Amber Scherer, High Plains

Sarah Haake, Bellevue West

Megan Hartman, Lincoln Southwest (transferred to Peru State College)

Callie Pinkham, Minden (transferred to the University of Nebraska at Kearney)

Shannon Smith, Bellevue East (transferred to Mt. Marty College)

Allyson Vrbas, Imperial

Destiny Worthey, Auburn

The Storm wraps up its fall schedule this weekend. The spring season starts in February.
