Bullock honored among MEAC greats from North Carolina A&T
North Carolina A&T State University is leaving the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference after 50 years. Anchorage’s Lillian Bullock was recognized among the school’s greatest MEAC all-stars for a golden anniversary team.
Bullock was a two-sport standout at North Carolina A&T from 2006 to 2009 in softball and women’s basketball. She was a two-time All-MEAC pick in softball in 2007 and 2008.
Bullock, of Service High fame, is believed to be the only college athlete from Alaska to play both D1 softball and D1 basketball. She was Gatorade Alaska Player of the Year for basketball in high school, but in college her specialty was softball.
With a .330 career batting average and home-run pop, the 5-foot-8 second baseman is arguably the greatest D1 softball hitter to come out of Alaska.
Bullock finished her career at North Carolina A&T with 138 RBIs, 79 extra-base hits and a .612 slugging percentage in 198 career games. She held the state career home run record of 34 from 2010 to 2017 when Anchorage’s Pauline Tufi of Louisiana Tech broke it by one.
In 2007, Bullock crushed 17 home runs and knocked in 56 RBIs in 60 games as a freshman to earn first team all-league honors. She finished that season ranked No. 2 nationally in homers and top-10 in RBIs among freshmen at the NCAA D1 level.
