OXFORD, Miss. – Ole Miss sophomore RT Cantillo has been named second team All-SEC as voted on by the league coaches, while freshman Allison Brown has been named to the SEC All-Freshman team, the SEC office announced on Wednesday. Cantillo is the fifth player in school history to earn All-SEC honors, while Brown is the seventh Rebel freshman to receive the honor.
Cantillo, who earned SEC All-Freshman team honors last year, led the Rebels with a .374 batting average and 33 runs scored, while her .560 on-base percentage would have led the conference if she had enough at-bats to qualify. In SEC play, Cantillo led the team with a .372 batting average, 13 runs scored and a .578 on-base percentage despite missing eight conference games due to injury. An outfielder, Cantillo finished year with a team-best seven outfield assists.
A native of Los Alamitos, Calif., Brown led the Rebels with 36 RBI and broke the Ole Miss freshman RBI record previously held by former All-American Lauren Grill. She started every game at shortstop for Ole Miss in her rookie season and led the Rebels with 10 doubles, while finishing second with five home runs. Brown finished third in the SEC among freshmen in RBI and knocked in a team-best 15 runs in conference play.
The University of Florida’s Michelle Moultrie was named SEC Player of the Year while the University of Alabama’s Jackie Traina earned Pitcher of the Year honors.
