CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y. (Apr. 30, 2012) - The East Coast Conference office has released its 2012 All-Conference softball selections and for the second consecutive season Mercy College senior Jenna Ausiello (Petaluma, Calif.) was tabbed to the First Team for another fantastic campaign for the Mavericks.
Ausiello finished the 2012 campaign with a .424 batting average, which ranked her second in the East Coast Conference. Her on-base percentage of .489 and slugging percentage of .658 slotted her second and third, respectively. She led the league in doubles with 22, which were eight more than the next player. Her 67 hits tied for the conference-lead and set a new school record. Ausiello's 35 RBI were good for seventh amongst her ECC counterparts.
Nationally, Ausiello ranked fifth in all of Division II in the toughest-to-strikeout category. She was also seventh in the country with 0.44 doubles per game.
Ausiello received ECC Co-Player of the Week praise once this season and was named to the ECC Player of the Week Honor Roll twice.
Beginning in early June, Ausiello will be flying overseas to Germany where she will play professional softball for the Hamburg Knights.
