Bama's McCleney SEC Frosh Honoree
McCleney, a native of Morris, put together one of the best opening weekends in Alabama softball history. In her first collegiate action, McCleney batted .722 (13-for-18) with nine runs, four RBI, two doubles, a triple, two home runs, two walks and five stolen bases.
She reached base three or more times in each contest and had three hits in four of the five games. She also scored at least one run every game and stole one base or more in four of the games on top of playing stellar defense.
In the win against Drake, the rookie batted 3-for-4, with an inside the park home run, a triple, scored twice and drove in two. Against NDSU, McCleney went 3-for-3, scored three runs, hit a double and a home run and stole a base.
Alabama will now continue tournament play on the road as it will head to Fort Myers, Fla., to participate in the FGCU/La Quinta Inn and Suites Tournament. UA will open play in Florida against Appalachian State on Friday. Bama's scheduled home opener against South Alabama was washed out.
