Although her team struggled, St. Louis College of Pharmacy freshman Lauren Wright, a 2016 graduate of Highland High School, looked comfortable in her first year playing ball at the next level.
Wright, an outfielder, batted .304 with a .368 on-base percentage, two homers, four doubles, 12 RBIs and six runs scored.
Wright was also recently named to the American Midwest Conference (AMC) Academic All-Conference Team. To qualify as AMC Academic All-Conference, a student-athlete must finish the season with his or her team, must be in the second term of attendance at the nominating institution, and must maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0.
