Belhaven softball player becomes programs’ all-time home run leader
JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - The Belhaven softball program has a new all-time leader in total home runs hit.
After becoming the Blazers’ all-time leader in RBIs just over a month ago, Belhaven third baseman Allie Gordon broke the programs decade-old, all-time home run record Thursday afternoon against Wesleyan College in the first round of the Collegiate Conference of the South league tournament.
Gordon now has 34 career home runs as a Blazer, surpassing the record set by Mallory Meadows in the 2008-2009 season, when she tallied 33 career home runs.
The junior is also just three doubles shy of breaking Belhaven softball’s all-time doubles record of 53.
Breaking the doubles record would see Gordon hold three program records.
She has also been named to the Tucci/NFCA DIII Player of the Year watchlist, an award given to the nation’s best player, for her contributions this season.
