Holmes Garners All-ACC Softball Honors
Sophomore From Santa Barbara Named Top Second Baseman in the Conference
Charlottesville, Va. -- Virginia 2B Stacy Holmes (Santa Barbara, Calif.) was named to the 1997 All-Atlantic Coast Conference team. Holmes was the only Virginia representative and lone second baseman to be named to the 12 member team. Virginia finished the regular season in second place in the ACC with a 6-2 record (17-16 overall).
Holmes followed up an impressive freshman campaign (.250, 3 2B, 4 3B, 9 RBI) with better sophomore season in which she led the Cavaliers in RBI (14) and home runs (3). Two of Holmes' three home runs came during the ACC Tournament. Holmes tallied seven multi-hit games in 32 starts for the Cavaliers and she will enter next season just one hit shy of 50 for her career. Holmes also was a stalwart defensively for UVa, as she committed just five errors while recording an impressive .966 fielding percentage. Over the final 21 games, Holmes made just one error as Virginia recorded their ninth winning season in the past 10 years.
