DURHAM, N.C. – After a second-straight season of dominating in the circle in conference play, sophomore Peyton St. George was tabbed All-ACC Second Team on Tuesday, the league announced.
This is St. George’s second conference honor, as she was named ACC All-Freshman Team last season. St. George joins teammate Raine Wilson as the two All-ACC honorees in Duke softball history, as Wilson was named to the first team last season.
A native of Mechanicsville, Va., St. George turned in a 1.83 ERA in ACC play, which finished fourth in the league. She also capped the conference season top five in four other categories: Opposing batting average (.196, T-2nd), runs allowed (13, T-2nd), earned runs allowed (12, 3rd) and hits allowed (32, 5th). Her 44 strikeouts, which led the Blue Devils in league play, finished tied for ninth.
St. George and the six-seeded Blue Devils open the 2019 ACC Tournament on Thursday, May 9 against No. 3 Notre Dame. First pitch is set for 7:30 p.m. ET from JoAnne Graf Field in Tallahassee, Fla., and will be broadcast on RSN and online on FoxSportsGo.com.
