Heinze named for All-ECAC teams

Mount St. Mary’s Univer­sity ju­nior Rachel Heinze, a St. Mary’s Ryken High School grad­u­ate from Char­lotte Hall, added an­other award for her record-break­ing 2016 sea­son when she was named sec­ond-team All-East­ern Col­lege Ath­letic Con­fer­ence at the util­ity po­si­tion to­day.

Heinze has al­ready been named third-team All-Re­gion at util­ity/non-pitcher by the Na­tional Fastpitch Coaches As­so­ci­a­tion, first­team All-North­east Con­fer­ence at the util­ity po­si­tion and the NEC’s Most Im­proved Player this sea­son.

The ju­nior out­fielder/ catcher had a record-break­ing sea­son for the Moun­taineers, lead­ing the team with a .347 av­er­age, 44 runs scored, 12 dou­bles, 19 home runs, 40 RBIs and 12 stolen bases. Heinze’s 19 home runs smashed both the Mount’s and the NEC’s sin­gle-sea­son record for homers. The pre­vi­ous NEC mark was 16 set by Wagner’s An­drea Laz­zari (2009) while the Mount record of 11 was set by Liz Chris­tiansen in 2010.
