All the awards will be hers.

Coupeville grad Sarah Wright continues to haul in accolades, with her most-recent accomplishment being named as an All-Conference college softball player.

The former Wolf supernova, now a junior at Sewanee: The University of the South, was tabbed as a Second-Team pick by Southern Athletic Association coaches last week.

Tiger teammates Alice Charboneau and Zoe Crockett earned Honorable Mention.

The All-Conference teams were based on play against other SAA teams, and Wright racked up 10 RBI in 13 league games.

She had 11 hits in conference action, with a pair of doubles and a home run which still hasn’t come back down to Earth.

Wright, whose first two college softball seasons were disrupted by the pandemic, was one of three Tigers to start all 33 games this year.

She led Sewanee in at-bats (102), runs (15), and home runs (2), while finishing second in RBI (17), and third in hits (25), total bases (35), and doubles (4).

The former Coupeville Valedictorian is majoring in politics and has made both the SAA Academic Honor Roll and All-Sportsmanship team during her time in Tennessee.

Season three is in the books.

Coupeville grad Sarah Wright played the final softball game of her junior campaign Saturday, as Sewanee: The University of the South was eliminated from postseason play.

The former Wolf smacked one of her team’s two hits, but the Tigers fell 4-0 to Centre College.

That, combined with a 3-2 defeat to Millsaps College Friday sends Sewanee home from the double-elimination Southern Athletic Association tournament.

Wright and Co. finished 7-26 on the season, but the 33 games were more than the Tigers played the last two seasons combined.

The pandemic restricted Sewanee to just 16 and 10 games during Wright’s freshman and sophomore seasons, respectively.

This time around, the former Wolf was one of three Tigers to start all 33 games on the diamond.

Wright finished the season leading the team in at-bats (102), runs (15), and home runs (2).

She was #2 in RBI (17), and #3 in hits (25), total bases (35), and doubles (4) while seeing time at both catcher and third base.

She’s an artist with a bat in her hands.

Playing in the regular season finale Saturday in Danville, Kentucky, Coupeville grad Sarah Wright put together another strong performance on the softball diamond.

The Sewanee: University of the South junior collected three hits, including a double, and two RBI as the Tigers split a doubleheader with Centre College.

The biggest of the two RBI came in the opener, where it proved to be the game-winner.

Trailing 3-0 heading to the top of the seventh and final inning, Sewanee rallied for four runs to pull off the stunner.

Freshman pinch hitter Kaila Seger drilled a three-run home run to right-center to tie things up, before Wright lofted a long sac fly to plate the go-ahead run.

Sewanee, which finishes the regular season at 7-24, now advances to the double-elimination Southern Athletic Association Tournament.

The Tigers are expected to begin play Apr. 21, but the opponent and site have yet to be revealed.

Wright, who finally got to play a full college season in her third go-round, after the pandemic trimmed down her first two seasons, is one of just three Tigers to have started all 31 games this season.

She leads Sewanee in at-bats (95) and is tied for first in runs (15) and home runs (2).

Wright has 23 hits — including four doubles — 16 RBI, three walks, and a tidy .607 OPS.

Coupeville’s Sarah Wright continues to pile up stats on the college softball diamond.

They exited with a win.

Capping a trip to Texas, the Sewanee: University of the South softball squad split a doubleheader with the University of Dallas Saturday afternoon.

Coupeville grad Sarah Wright helped spark the Tigers, who dropped the opener 7-2, then won the nightcap 10-2.

The former Wolf star smacked a pair of hits and scampered around the basepaths, stepping on home plate to score three times in the twin-bill.

The split lifts Sewanee to 3-17 on the season and sends it off on another adventure.

Wright and Co., who attend classes in Tennessee, head to Rome, Georgia Mar. 26-27 for a three-game series with Berry College.

Those games are league contests, while the matchup with Dallas was a non-conference affair.

Wright, a junior at Sewanee, is finally getting a chance to play a complete season after year one and two were shortened by the pandemic.

Coupeville’s progeny is first on her team in home runs (2), RBI (10), runs (11), total bases (24), and at-bats (60), while being second in hits (15) and third in doubles (3).

The CHS Valedictorian back in the day, Wright is majoring in politics at Sewanee.

Sarah Wright enjoys hittin’ dingers.

The softball sensation whacked a bunch of round-trippers during her days at Coupeville High School, and nothing has changed during her time in college.

Wright went yard for the second time this season Thursday, as she and her Sewanee: University of the South teammates dueled with Austin College in Texas.

And while the Tigers fell 7-3 and 8-0, the former Wolf keeps adding to her impressive stat totals.

Wright leads Sewanee in home runs (2), RBI (10), and runs scored (8) this season, and is second on the squad in hits (13) and doubles (3).

Thursday’s home run was the fourth of her college career for the Tiger catcher, now in her junior season.
