A pair of juniors on the Central College softball time have received recognition for their play on the field in the NFCA Leadoff Classic in Panama City Beach, Florida. Kiley Lythberg, a pitcher for the Dutch, was named to the Leadoff Classic’s All-Tournament Team for her performances in the circle in three wins for Central, in which she posted a 2-0 record with a 0.95 earned run average. Lythberg was one of just 12 players named to the All-Tournament Team out of the 24-team field.
Central’s Katie Tenboer was also recognized as the Iowa Conference’s softball position player of the week. Tenboer batted .461 for the Dutch in six games at the Leadoff Classic, including going 4-4 with three RBIs in a win over St. Thomas that clinched second place for Central in the Silver Bracket. The Dutch are rated No. 20 in the NFCA Division III poll and are 5-4 on the season.
