Sophomores Chelsea Showers and Katy Jordan received All-America honors as the Lady Cavs reflect on a stellar two-year softball run.

The NJCAA announced recently that Showers, an outfielder, earned 2nd Team All-America and Jordan, Darton’s pitching ace, received 3rd Team All-America honors for her second consecutive year.

Jordan recorded over 50 wins and 500 strikeouts during her Darton career, and finished the 2012 season as the Georgia Collegiate Athletic Association MVP.

2012 was an awesome year for the Lady Cavs, who were 45-7 with a record-breaking 30 consecutive wins. Seven Darton student-athletes made the All-Conference team, including infielders Amanda Jaskolski, Kelsea Ogletree and Chantel Currinton, Infielder Jessica Vasson, catcher Holly Smith, and, of course, Showers and Jordan.

Darton head softball coach David Dews received his fourth Region XVII Coach of the Year title.

"This is the best 2-year run Darton Softball has had," said Darton asst. softball coach Sam White. "We had a sophomore class record of 95-18, a 30-game winning streak, two conference titles and a Region XVII Championship."
