The SEC league office announced Thursday Ole Miss softball’s Kylan Becker received preseason honors heading into the 2019 season.
This is the second consecutive season the right-fielder received this honor. She is one of four outfielders on the team, joining Alabama’s Kaylee Tow, Florida’s Amanda Lorenz and LSU’s Aliyah Andrews.
The Miami, Florida native comes into her senior season securing herself as one of the most productive offensive players in Ole Miss history. Becker ranks fourth all-time with a career .339 batting average and seven triples, while also ranking in the top-10 in career hits, on-base percentage and stolen bases. The speedy center fielder has also established herself as an elite talent defensively, boasting a perfect 1.000 fielding percentage for her career.
As a junior, Becker led the team with a .329 batting average with six doubles, a pair of triples and 29 RBIs. The senior demonstrated a keen eye at the plate, leading the Rebels with 19 walks, contributing to a team-best .407 OBP.
Ole Miss opens the 2019 slate on February 7-10 in a five-game tournament at the Friends of Jaclyn Tournament in Orlando, Florida. The Rebels will take the diamond against Ohio State, Minnesota, George Mason and the host school UCF.
