ATHENS, Ga. - University of Georgia outfielder Taylor Schlopy has been named to the 2010 ESPN.com All-America Team.
Schlopy, a native of West Hills, Calif., was named a Louisville Slugger/National Fastpitch Coaches Association Second Team All-America selection earlier this month along with teammate Alisa Goler. Schlopy becomes the second Bulldog to earn ESPN.com All-America honors with Goler earning the recognition last season.
Schlopy, a top 25 finalist for the USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year award, led the team in several offensive categories in 2010 including batting average (.418), on-base percentage (.566), runs scored (79), triples (5) and stolen bases (30). Schlopy's on-base percentage broke the previous single-season UGA record of .551 set by Goler in 2009 while her 79 runs scored also established a new single-season school record surpassing the previous mark of 78 set by Nicole Barber in 2003. Additionally, Schlopy would have set a new school record with 50 walks but was second on the team in that category behind Goler's 55. Schlopy also contributed 11 home runs and 33 RBI in 2010.
