BALDWIN CITY, Kan. - After advancing to the HAAC Playoffs for the first time in four years, the Wildcats added more accolades to a team that had already reached new heights. As selected by league coaches, the Wildcats had three players named to the Heart of America all-conference team.

Sophomore Brooke Allen (Topkea, Kan.) was named second-team all-HAAC after finishing the year batting .350 with 57 hits and 14 stolen bases.

Freshman Heather Gruber (Stilwell, Kan.) was named honorable mention all-HAAC after finishing the season with 15 wins and an ERA of 3.55. Gruber also received the gold glove for her position.

Senior Kelsey Epperson (Eudora, Kan.) had career-highs in nearly every offensive category in 2010. Epperson finished the season batting .290 with 42 hits and two HRs.

2010-11 will have all the makings for an exciting and re-energized season. The Wildcats have already added key recruits and look forward to building on a foundation that first-year head coach Matt Windle has set.

"Getting to the conference tournament was like icing on the cake for us," said head coach Matt Windle. "We gained valuable experience just getting to that point and winning a game against top-ranked Lindenwood. We had a lead at one point in every game. I think our players are really looking forward to next season."

The Wildcats finished the season 18-31 under first-year head coach Matt Windle. A mark that surpassed the combined total of the past two seasons.
