Three Softball Players Named to All-Conference Team

Freeland, Mich. - Seniors Chelsea Schweiger (St. Clair, Mich. / St. Clair) and McKenzie Creed (Edwardsburg, Mich. / Edwardsburg) as well as freshman Hadyn Terwilliger (Mount Pleasant, Mich. / Sacred Heart Academy) have been named All-Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association members, as announced by the league on Wednesday (May 1). Schweiger and Terwilliger garnered First-Team honors while Creed found a spot on the Second Team.

This is Schweiger's first time making it to the first team; she is a two-time Second-Team member. The centerfielder had the best offensive season in her career statistically, posting career highs in batting average (.431), on-base percentage (.424), slugging percentage (.488), as well as runs scored (37) and walks (16). Schweiger tallied 53 hits on the year, more than anyone else in the conference, and also posted the second-highest batting average and third-highest on-base percentage in the league. She ends her career sixth on Alma's all-time list with 43 stolen bases.

Terwilliger had arguably the best season an Alma freshman has ever had. She hit eight home runs, tied for the third-most in the league and the fifth-most in a single season and already two away from being among the program's top-ten all-time, drove in 36 runs and slugged .658, the fifth-highest of any Alma player in one year ever. She also became the first player in program history to hit three home runs in one game, which she did in the final game of the season against Albion.

Creed adds this first All-Conference honor after ending her Alma career with 19 home runs, three shy of the program's all-time record. She hit 10 as a senior, tied for the most in the league and tying the Alma record for the most in one year. Her slugging percentage of .730 is second to only Mary Brooks in a single Alma season, and her career RBI total of 129 is the second-most any Scot has amassed in her career.
