Mendlik Earns Louisville Slugger Regional Honor
Doane College freshman Shelby Mendlik was recently named to the Louisville Slugger/NFCA NAIA All-Southwest Region Team. Mendlik joins a short list of Tigers to receive this honor. In total, 10 selections to the First and Second Teams are from GPAC schools.
Mendlik was named to the Second Team at shortstop after a banner year. She set a school record in home runs with 13 and posted 36 RBIs and a .413 batting average. Also serving as a pitcher during the year, Mendlik went 4-3 in 12 appearances with a 4.82 ERA.
During the 2011 season, she received GPAC Player-of-the-Week honors and following the year, she was named First Team All-GPAC.
Mendlik, along with teammate Brooke Sampson, are expected to challenge the career record for home runs at Doane which is currently held by Pamela Masker with 21. Sampson will enter next year with 18 while Mendlik has 13 after one year.
