a senior (Gil Talbot).
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Senior shortstop Jane Alexander of the Harvard softball team has been named to the Capital One 2012 Academic All-America Division I softball team, the organization announced Thursday. Alexander is the only player from the Ivy League to earn the accolade, and one of just three players from a Northeast school.
The Palo Alto, Calif., native earned a spot on the Academic All-America third team after receiving Academic All-District first team honors earlier this year. She boasts a 3.49 grade-point average as a psychology concentrator at Harvard.
Alexander, the Ivy League Co-Player of the Year, saved her breakout year for her senior season. The top hitter on the league’s top offensive team, she led the Ivy League with 60 hits on the year and also tied for the top mark in total bases (90), while placing second in runs scored (32), tied for first in doubles (13) and first in triples (4). She started every game this season at shortstop and led the Crimson to a berth in the NCAA regional final for the first time in school history.
