Covenant's Kay Named To NFCA All-Region First Team

Monday, May 16, 2022
Covenant softball freshman third base Lauren Kay was named to the NFCA All-Region VI first team, announced the organization on Monday.

Kay becomes the third Scot to collect NFCA All-Region honors in the program's NCAA era. It is the second straight year Covenant has placed a player on the first team (Jordan Holman, 2021).

A freshman from Chattanooga, Tenn., Kay broke several program freshman records and all-time single-season marks in her rookie season. Kay earned All-USA South first team honors after hitting .430 with nine home runs, 23 RBIs, 45 runs scored, and 24 walks.
She led the team with a .537 on-base percentage and a .841 slugging percentage for a 1.378 OPS on the year. 

Kay was the NFCA National Player of the Week for Division III on April 19 after batting .783 with five homers, 10 RBIs, and 17 runs scored the week prior. That stretch started a 12-game hitting streak for Kay, in which she tallied a hit in 13 consecutive at-bats and had nine straight games with multiple hits (tying a program record).

She led the USA South in total bases and slugging percentage and ranked fourth in the USA South in batting average while being second in home runs and on-base percentage.

Her 24 walks and .537 on-base percentage set program single-season records, while her 45 runs tied the program record. Kay's .430 batting average ranked fourth all-time and her 90 total bases were third. She also tied or broke eight freshman program records including homers, average, runs scored, total bases, slugging percentage, walks, on-base percentage, and stolen bases (12).

Kay's play helped Covenant to a 20-17 overall record and 10-6 in USA South.
