Florida’s Michelle Moultrie was named the SEC Player of the Year last week, giving the school back-to-back honors for the league’s top softball player. Outfielder Kelsey Bruder received the award last year.
Moultrie was one of seven Florida players named to All-SEC teams this year, marking the fourth consecutive year she’s earned that honor. She was a second-team pick in 2010 and 2011, making the All-Defensive team last year, and was an All-Freshman pick in 2009.
Moultrie ranks second on the team with a .376 average and 10 home runs. She has a team-best .635 slugging percentage and a .481 on-base percentage. On defense, the offense has a perfect fielding percentage with no errors and 66 putouts.
She is the fourth UF athlete to pick up SEC player of the year honors, joining Marcin Cieslak and Elizabeth Beisel in swomming and Lauren Embree in women’s tennis.
Pitcher Hannah Rogers and catcher Kelsey Horton were named to the second team. Four Gators were named to the All-Freshman Team – pitcher Alyssa Bache, first baseman and pitcher Lauren Haeger, third baseman Sami Fagan and left fielder Jess Damico.
