Three Named to Softball All-Horizon League Second-Team

Indianapolis, Ind. — Senior Vicky Rumph and juniors Casey Crozier and Samantha Snodgrass were named to the All-Horizon League Second-Team in a vote of the league’s head coaches, the league announced on Tuesday (May 7).

Snodgrass led the team with a .375 batting average with 10 doubles, three home runs, 20 RBIs and a .523 slugging percentage.

Snodgrass turned in a first-team caliber season for the Penguins in 2013. The junior third baseman ranked fifth in the league in batting average (.375) and on-base percentage (.468) and seventh in the league in slugging percentage (.523). Snodgarss also ranked tied for sixth with 10 doubles. Snodgrass also batted .344 against Horizon League opponents.

Crozier, who had an 8-5 record against league foes, earned all but three of the Penguins victories this season and struck out 120 batters.

Crozier became the first Youngstown State pitcher to earn All-Horizon League honors since Karlie Burnell was named to the second-team in 2006, the year the Penguins won the Horizon League Tournament Championship. Crozier, who defeated each team in the league at least once, ranked fifth in the circuit in strikeouts and with an earned-run average of 2.43. Her 13 overall victories were also the fifth most in the league. In league play, Crozier limited her opponents to a batting average of .229 and went 8-5 with an ERA of 2.09.

Rumph batted .306 with seven doubles and team-highs six home runs and 32 runs batted in. She also became the Penguins career RBI leader with 120.

Rumph earned All-Horizon League Second-Team honors for the second consecutive season. This is the second straight year a YSU player has earned back-to-back all-league laurels. Last season, Jordan Ingalls was named to the first-team for the second straight year. Rumph belted three home runs and had four doubles in league play this year.
