Speer Garners All-ACC Second Team Accolades
May 8, 2013
GREENSBORO, N.C. – Boston College catcher Tory Speer was named to the 2013 All-ACC Second Team in an announcement made by the ACC on Wednesday.
Speer (Trabuco Canyon, Calif.) earns her second career All-ACC honor after being a First Team selection and ACC Freshman of the Year in 2011. The 15 home runs in 2013 by Speer set a single-season BC record previously held by Cara Blumfield’s 14 home runs in 2001.
The junior leads the Eagles offensively this season in batting average (.338), doubles (12), home runs (15), RBI (38) as well as slugging (.759) and on-base percentage (.503) in 51 games played. Speer’s selection marks the second consecutive season that BC has received an All-ACC Second Team accolade – Andrea Filler earned that distinction in 2012.
Boston College and Florida State will meet in the first round of the ACC Tournament on Thursday at Joanne Graf Field. First pitch is slated for 5 p.m. on ESPN3.
