CLARKSTOWN, N.Y. -- On the day the finest season in history ended for the Pace University softball team, more accolades rolled in for Clarkstown North High School grad Ashley Lew.
The sophomore shortstop was named to the Academic All-District Softball first team for District 1. She was also named to the National Fastpitch Coaches Association All-East region second team.
The honors were announced as the Setters dropped two games and were eliminated in the NCAA Division II tournament. The Northeast-10 Conference champions lost to Adelphi, 6-0, and LIU Post, 8-0. Pace finishes its season 28-16.
Lew hit .410 with 35 runs scored and 21 stolen bases. The Setters' leadoff hitter had an on-base percentage of .500 for the season and also knocked in 14 RBIs. Lew also hit six doubles, a triple and a home run in the regular season. She hit a big home run early in the Northeast-10 Conference Championship Game against Southern New Hampshire University.
She has sparkled in the classroom as well. Lew has achieved a stellar 3.58 cumulative grade-point average in her major of public accounting through her first three semesters at Pace. She is also a three-time Northeast-10 Conference Commissioner's Honor Roll member. Her excellent season on the field led to Northeast-10 Softball All-Conference First-Team honors.
Lew was named Rockland County Athlete of the season in 2014 and was an all-section honorable-mention selection in 2013 and 2014. Section 1 includes Westchester, Rockland, Putnam and Dutchess counties.
