Red Storm centerfielder among Big East best

TimesLedger Newspapers

St. John’s centerfielder Kristi Cady was named to the Big East softball Honor Roll after leading the Red Storm offensively at the Red & Black Showcase in Athens, Ga., during the opening weekend of the 2012 season.

Cady hit .533 during the four-game tournament, going 8-for-15 with three doubles, two triples and five runs scored. The Hamilton, N.J., native had a 1.000 slugging percentage over the weekend and registered seven putouts while starting all four games in centerfield for the Red Storm.

She posted multiple-hit games in each of the season’s first three games, registering an RBI in all three contests. Cady now has five triples in her career, tying her for the St. John’s career record.

The four-year starter in center is riding a four-game hitting streak to open the 2012 season, after compiling a team-best 14-game streak during the 2011 season en route to a .333 batting average.

This is the third Honor Roll nod for Cady in her Red Storm career, also receiving the honor for the weeks of Feb. 21, 2011, and March 15, 2010.

The Red Storm next take the field Saturday, Feb. 18, against UMBC at 11:30 a.m. as part of the Longwood Lancer Lead Off Classic in Longwood, Va.
