May 9, 2017

NORFOLK, Va. - Two days before the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) Softball Championship, the league announced its all-conference honorees and three Maryland Eastern Shore Hawks were recognized for their outstanding seasons: senior captain Allison Anderson (Colorado Springs, Colo.) and juniors Samantha Casarez (Sylmar, Calif.) and Adrienne Guerra (Monrovia, Calif.). The announcement came today.

All awards are voted on by the conference's head softball coaches and sports information directors.

Guerra headlines The Shore after being named twice for her bat and arm. The California product was chosen to the All-MEAC First Team as its utility player while garnering Second Team honors for her efforts inside the circle.

This year, she was selected MEAC Pitcher of the Week twice while ranking among the conference leaders in several pitching categories. Guerra registered seven wins, including four complete-game shutouts.

At the dish, she batted .380 in league play with a .429 on-base percentage while recording eight multi-hit games.



Anderson was named to the All-MEAC Second Team after finishing her senior year with a career-high .347 at the plate, which was ninth-best in the conference. On March 28, College Sports Madness chose the senior captain as its Player of the Week after her performances versus in-state rival Coppin State.

After an outstanding senior campaign, the Colorado Springs native ended her career competing in 155 games, including 149 starts, while producing 108 hits, 42 RBIs, 33 walks, 20 doubles, 16 stolen bases, three triples, and a homer.

Casarez took All-MEAC Third Team honors after a team-leading .351 batting average, which was tied for seventh overall in the league. The California product ended her junior season recording eight multi-hit games while reaching base safely in the final six contests.

Other notable honors included Bethune-Cookman's Ryan Jackson winning two honors: MEAC Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year. Morgan State's Amy Begg claimed the league's top pitcher award while Florida A&M's Veronica Wiggins took home the conference's Coach of the Year accolade.

Casaraz and Guerra will look to guide Maryland Eastern Shore back into the postseason as they continue their quest for a conference title next season.
