Cutler Selected to All-AAC Second Team, Rookie Team

May 10, 2017

COMPLETE LIST OF AWARDS

GREENVILLE, N.C. –
Freshman Carli Cutler, the leading hitter on the UConn softball team, has been selected to the American Athletic Conference All-Second Team and All-Rookie Team, as announced by the league on Wednesday morning.

One of several freshmen players to make an impact for the Huskies this season, Cutler provided a noticeable presence in the middle of the lineup – posting a team-best .308 batting average, 41 hits, 10 doubles and 60 total bases.

A native of Rocklin, Calif., Cutler becomes the first UConn player to earn a spot on an All-Rookie Team since Kim Castner in 2003, when the Huskies were a part of the Big East Conference.

Cutler, who appeared in 46 games this season at pitcher, first base and second base, becomes the second Husky in two seasons to be named to the All-Second Team. Senior Lexi Gifford earned the honor in 2016.

At one point this season, Cutler reached base in 14 straight games – a season-high for any Husky. She is tied with redshirt senior Valerie Sadowl for 10 multi-hit performances, including a 2-for-3, three-RBI game in a win over Northern Kentucky on March 5.


 

 

Earlier in the season, Cutler was named to the Rainbow Wahine Classic All-Tournament Team after her performance in Honolulu, Hawaii – going 6-for-21 with a home run, two doubles, two RBI and four runs scored.

On April 17, Cutler earned a nod to the AAC Weekly Honor Roll, one of five different Huskies selected throughout the season.

The seventh-seeded Huskies open play in the American Athletic Conference Tournament today against second-seeded Houston at 3:30 p.m. (ET) at the ECU Softball Complex. For an updated bracket, click HERE.
