Princess Anne, Md. -- The University of Maryland Eastern Shore Softball team concluded its regular season Sunday, but postseason accolades were given to one of its top performing team members. Freshman Morgan King was named to the College Sports Madness 2012 All-Conference Team Tuesday.

King was announced to the all-conference second team as an infielder. She has played multiple positions this season, but finished her first year as the team's catcher. Offensively, King had the Hawks best batting average (.330), led the team with two homeruns and had a team best nine doubles. In the Hawks most recent series with Delaware State, King blasted two doubles to centerfield in separate games.

She had her best game of the season against South Carolina State, where she hit .400 on the day. She went 3-of-4 at the plate, scored two runs and had a run batted in. King finished the season with 20 RBIs in 29 hits.

King's contribution to the team was invaluable. Head coach Sam Douglas honored King as the Hawks Rookie of the Year in the athletic department's annual awards banquet.
