Concordia All-Conference Award Recap

Pearson, Rebertus and Sparby Earn MIAC Postseason Honors!
ST. PAUL--- Three Concordia fastpitch players earned MIAC postseason honors as announced by the league office on Monday. Mandy Pearson (Sr., Watkins, Minn./Eden-Valley-Watkins HS), Jolene Rebertus (Sr., Chanhassen, Minn./Chaska HS) and Lindy Sparby Jr., Cold Spring, Minn./Cold Spring-Rocori HS) were all awarded with conference honors. Pearson was the lone Cobber representative on the MIAC All-Conference team while Rebertus and Sparby earned all-conference honorable mention honors.

It is the second consecutive year that Pearson has MIAC postseason honors. It is the first postseason award for both Rebertus and Sparby.

Pearson completes her athletic Hall-of-Fame career by being named to her first MIAC All-Conference Team in fastpitch softball after being placed on the all-conference honorable mention team last year. The award follows her two-time conference MVP and All-American accolades in basketball. 

Pearson was third on the team in hitting in 2005 with a .294 average. She was tied for the team lead in on-base percentage (.351) and third on the team in slugging percentage (.402). Pearson's biggest contribution to the team came in the field where she started every game at shortstop for the Cobbers. Her range and ability to make plays going to her right or left made her the top defensive shortstop in the league. She led the MIAC in assists in overall games with 106. That total set a Concordia school record for assists in a single season. 

Rebertus' award caps an incredible career where she started every game at third base during her four-year career at Concordia. She set school records in most games started and most games played (133). She also set the school record in assists in a career with 326. In 2005, Rebertus hit .252, was tied for second on the team in RBIs (14) and fourth on the team in hits (26).

Concordia's top pitcher in 2005, Sparby was among the league leaders in conference games in ERA (2.12), opposing batting average (.233), innings pitched (72.0) and games started (11). She led the Cobbers in overall ERA (2.75) and innings pitched (102.1) and was tied for the team lead in victories (5). Sparby also doubled as the team's firstbaseman in games when she was not pitching. She hit .233 and was tied for the team lead in doubles (6) and home runs (2).
