The Appalachian Athletic Conference announced the 2014 Softball All-Conference Team on Monday and former Woodland High softball player Randi Wimpy of Reinhardt is the AAC Player of the Year.

Heading into the conference tournament, Wimpy led the AAC in batting with a .450 average and in RBIs with 58.

The sophomore catcher ranked nationally in 15 statistical categories at the beginning of the week, including No. 1 in total home runs with 19 and total bases with 144. She also ranks No. 2 in slugging percentage at 1.029 and No. 4 in total runs scored, 62.

Wimpy has had as many as six RBIs in a game this year and twice produced a multi-home run game.

The Lady Eagles won their regular season title in the AAC and, as a result, earned an automatic qualifying bid to the NAIA National Tournament next month.

Reinhardt is currently ranked No. 11 in the nation and will be hosting its first game of the NAIA National Tournament. If the Lady Eagles win two games at home, they will travel to Columbus for the World Series, which will be played at the softball field used during the 1996 Olympics.
