LOS ANGELES - Under first-year Head Coach Sami Strinz-Ward, the LMU softball team has earned the distinction of being the 2016 national champion in doubles per game as the NCAA released its final statistical report for the season.

The Lions, who finished the year with a 32-21 overall record and 10-5, second place West Coast Conference finish, smashed the program record for doubles, concluding with 106. That mark was good for 2.00 per game and a No. 1 national ranking among the 290 NCAA Division I schools across the country.

LMU also finished in the top 50 nationally in slugging percentage (No. 16, .515), home runs per game (No. 22, 1.13) and batting average (No. 47, .309).

Individually, Alicia Brown ranked 11th in doubles per game (0.38), Meghan von Behren was 41st in batting average (.421) and Stephanie Maciel was 49th in sacrifice hits per game (0.23). Brown was one of five Lions to collect double digit doubles on the season, setting a program record with 20 two-baggers.



The Lions’ numbers also ranked among the WCC’s best as the squad led the league in batting average, slugging percentage, on base percentage, doubles, home runs and total bases. They also ranked second in fielding percentage, putouts, assists and double plays.
