Alaskans key Brevard’s success (Softball)
After being the eighth-place team in the South Atlantic Conference in each of the last two years, the Brevard College softball team is climbing out of the basement.
Led by two women from Eagle River, the team sits in second place in the league and has won 23 of 31 games overall.
Senior first baseman Sarah Carlos is the school’s reigning winner of the women’s student-athlete of the month award after hitting .356 and driving in 14 runs in 16 games.
Carlos, of Eagle River High fame, has started all 31 games and ranks second on the team in batting average (.345), RBIs (19), triples (2) and sacrifice bunts (6).
Fellow Alaskan Becca Curlee, of Chugiak High fame, has also started all 31 games at shortstop.
The junior is hitting .301 and is tied for the most doubles (5) on the team. She has also hit 2 home runs and 9 RBIs.
A defensive gem, Curlee has made only four errors on 59 attempts in the field.
