Emory University freshman Hannah Sendel of Greenwood Village was one of five Emory Eagles recently chosen for the University Athletic Association Softball All-Tournament Team.
The tourney was held March 12-16 in Altamonte Springs, Fla. Atlanta’s Emory won the conference crown with an 8-0 mark and Sendel was named Co-MVP of the tournament, sharing that honor with Amanda Genovese of Brandeis University.
Sendel hit .471, the fifth-highest mark during the tourney, rapping out eight hits in 17 trips to the plate. She drove in a league-high 15 runs and socked a conference-best four homers. She hit safely in five of the seven outings she played in and delivered a pair of multi-hit contests, including a 3-for-3 performance against Case Western in the finale of the tourney on March16.
She homered in four different contests, including a grand slam against Brandeis in the opening game of the championships.
During the year, Sendel has appeared in 23 of the squad’s 35 games – 18 as a starter – and is hitting .298 with 14 hits in 47 trips to the plate. She has driven in 22 runs and has stroked four homers and four doubles.
Sendel is a 2012 graduate of Cherry Creek High School.
