MARION, Ind. -- Seniors Tamara Davis and Abbie Forman were recognized today when the NAIA announced its postseason awards.
Davis becomes the first Wildcat to be named NAIA All-American since 2005 when she was named NAIA All-American Second Team. Britney Froedge was the last Wildcat to earn All-American honors when she was also named to the Second Team in 2005.
Davis is only the fourth Wildcat to make the NAIA All-American list, joining Jean Doehring (1999), Sarah Shivler (2002), and Froedge. All four have been selected to the Second Team.
The senior from Monroe, Ohio was the catalyst for the Indiana Wesleyan offense that broke many program records. Davis hit a team-leading .462 with 15 doubles, eight triples, four home runs, and 37 RBI. She also added 47 stolen bases and 68 runs scored.
Davis was second in the NAIA in Hits per Game (1.665), third in stolen bases (47), third in Total Hits (96), fourth in Triples (8), and eighth in Runs Scored (68).
Forman was selected as a NAIA All-American Honorable Mention nominee. Forman was 37-9 on the mound for Indiana Wesleyan, a new school record. She had a 2.43 ERA in 307.2 innings pitched. Forman struck out 308 while walking just 70 batters. The Adrian, Michigan product finished second in the NAIA in Wins, Innings Pitched, and Strikeouts.
The NCCAA also announced their All-Americans today and both Davis and Forman were recognized. Davis was named NCCAA All-American First Team while Forman was honored as a member of the NCCAA All-American Second Team.
Indiana Wesleyan finished off their historic season last week with the program's first ever trip to the NAIA National Championship, where they would defeat No. 20-ranked Central Methodist (Mo.) University in pool play. IWU won a program record 45 games and won the program's second ever Mid-Central College Conference tournament championship.
