Kristie Chin Earns Second Team Academic All-District Honors

Providence, RI- Brown University junior pitcher Kristie Chin (Katy, TX) received CoSIDA ESPN The Magazine Second Team Academic All-District honors.

Chin, concentrating in Civil Engineering & Architectural Studies,  had an outstanding year for the softball team and earned a 14-5 overall record with a stellar 2.14 ERA to rank third in the Ivy League. She made 26 appearances on the mound and started in 18 contests. Chin combined for five shutouts and in 134.1 innings pitched, she allowed just 41 earned runs, walked just 16 batters and struck out 103.

She not only helped lead the Bears on the mound, but she was also an offensive threat at the plate for the team. She batted .375 and combined for 15 hits, eight RBI, nine runs scored and tallied one homerun, a game-winner against Dartmouth on April 28th. She received Ivy League Pitcher of the Week honors on March 23 after pitching a near-perfect game against St. Peter's, in which she did not allow any hits or runs, walked just one and struck out seven batters in five innings pitched.
