Loos named All-American for second time


Wayne State senior softball standout Lexie Loos was named to the National Fastpitch Coaches Association Div. II All-American Team, earning second-team honors.
The senior centerfielder was a first-team All-NSIC selection for a second straight season this year and was also an NFCA All-Central Region first-team honoree after leading the NSIC in batting average (.467), on-base percentage (.505), hits (92) and runs scored (58) while ranking ninth in total bases (106) and tied for 12th in stolen bases (18). She ranks 10th in NCAA Division II in batting average and is 13th nationally in runs scored per game at 1.12.
Loos reached base safely in 52 of 53 games this season and led the Wildcats with 29 multi-hit games. She had hitting streaks of 16 and 15 games during the season, broke her own single season runs scored record with 58, matched her school record batting average (.467) and was one hit shy of matching her single-season hits record of 93 set last season. She finished her career as the all-time runs scored leader with 158 and third in career hits with 250.
Loos joins Katie Goetzinger (2010 and 2011) as a two-time All-American at Wayne State after Loos was a third-team All-American last season.
