Laura Behnke Named to the All-Great Lakes Region First Team!

05/21/2013 1:29 PM -

Laura Behnke has been a hitting student under Kathy Young since age 12!

Augustana sophomore leftfielder Laura Behnke (Wheaton St. Francis HS, Roselle, Ill.) has been rewarded for an outstanding season by being named first team all-Great Lakes Region. She was the unquestioned offensive leader for a Viking team that went 32-14, won the College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin Tournament and placed third in the NCAA Division III Pella, Iowa Regional.

After batting .299 in 29 games as a freshman, Behnke exploded during her sophomore season. She led the team with a .437 average as she compiled 66 hits in 151 at-bats with 34 runs scored, 24 runs-batted-in, 10 doubles, five triples and eight home runs. The hard-hitting lefthander who batted in the lead-off slot managed 19 base-on-balls, 10 stolen bases and was hit-by-pitch twice. She struck out just 16 times in 174 plate appearances.

A model of consistency all season long, Behnke had 24 multiple-hit games including five where she banged out three hits. She only had one stretch this season where she was held hitless in consecutive games and that came way back on February 28 in games against Ferrum and Alma in Florida. Behnke ended the season on a 10-game hitting streak.
