2010 Season - Quaritsch named to All-American team

Karlee Quaritsch finished her career as Augustana's all-time leader in home runs. She was also named to the NCAA Division III All-American team.

Augustana senior Karlee Quaritsch (Palatine HS, Palatine, Ill.),this year’sCCIW Player of the Year, has added another to her growing list of awards for the 2010 season. Quaritsch has been named to the Louisville Slugger/National Fastpitch Softball Coaches Association Division III All-America team. She was a second team selection at catcher.

The 5’ 5” Quaritsch, who logged time at third base in addition to catching, led the Vikings with 11 home runs this season. That mark equaled her own single-season school record, set in 2008, and gave her 31 for her career—also a school record. She led the Vikings in batting with a .409 average and topped the squad in several other categories as well, including runs scored (35), runs batted in (tied with 36), hits (54), total bases (96), slugging (.727) and on-base percentage (.470).

Quaritsch ranks prominently on Augustana’s career leader boards as well. In addition to being the school’s all-time home run leader, she is second in RBI with 111—trailing only Sam Knox’s (2004-07) 131—tied for fifth in runs (108), eighth in hits (157) and doubles (28), ninth in at-bats (418) and 10th in batting average (.376).
