OF Taylor Gadbois
May 28, 2014
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – One of the most impressive individual seasons in Mizzou Softball history was recognized by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association on Wednesday, with the organization announcing redshirt sophomore outfielder Taylor Gadbois (Maryville, Mo.) as a Third Team All-America selection. The honor for Gadbois comes after an outstanding 2014 season that saw the Tiger bat .421 and record 85 hits, 55 runs scored and 46 stolen bases, all marks that rank among the best single-season totals in school history,
Gadbois led the Tigers in at-bats (202), batting average, hits, runs scored, on-base percentage (.466) and stolen bases to help head coach Ehren Earleywine’s squad to a 43-18 overall record and the program’s eighth-straight NCAA Regional appearance. Her 85 hits tied for the second-best single-season total in school history, while her .421 mark at the plate ranked third-best. Gadbois’ 46 stolen bases tied for the third-best single-season total all-time at Mizzou, and her 55 runs scored came in at fifth-best in school history.
Gadbois’ campaign from the leadoff spot in Mizzou’s lineup and in center field was especially significant coming after a 2013 season that saw her hit only .103 at the plate.
The All-America nod in the outfield for Gadbois follows her selection to the NFCA All-Southeast Region Second Team. She also picked up postseason recognition from the Southeastern Conference, bringing home First Team All-SEC honors to Mizzou.
With Gadbois’ selection as a 2014 All-American, Mizzou and Earleywine have had at least one All-American in each of the last seven seasons. Gadbois is the 11th All-America selection of Earleywine’s tenure in Columbia and is the 26th All-American in program history.
