Schaefer Earns All-American Honors

June 21, 2018

Central Community College softball is pleased to announce that catcher Danica Schaefer has earned NJCAA Division II All-American honors.

Schaefer, a graduate of Wayne High School, was named Second Team All-American. Last month, she was named Region IX Offensive Player of the Year. For the second consecutive season, Schaefer was the leading hitter for the Raiders with a .466 batting average to go along with 33 RBIs and a team-high 39 runs. She netted two homeruns, a team-best 18 doubles and a triple.

“Danica was an outstanding catcher for the Raider softball program the past two years,” said CCC head coach Jack Gutierrez. “Her selection as an NJCAA Division II Second Team All-American is the highest honor our program has received in the 11 years of existence. Danica is very worthy of the honor with her .466 batting average and her selection as Region IX Offensive Player of the Year. She will be greatly missed as a player and leader.”

In May, Schaefer graduated with honors from CCC. She will continue her education and softball career at Wayne State College.
