March 1, 2009

DENTON, Texas –

Kansas softball third baseman Val Chapple was named to the North Texas Invite after going 5-for-9 from the plate (.556 average) in three starts and batting in a team-high five runs as the Jayhawks went 1-2 during the tournament.

Of Chapple’s five hits, two went for extra bases, including a three-run home run in the team’s 10-1 win over Harvard Sunday afternoon as she registered a 1.000 slugging percentage over the weekend. The 5-3 senior also scored three runs of her own and had a stolen base.

Joining Chapple on the all-tournament team was Jessica Pledger and Rachel Brown from Harvard and Mallory Cantler, Sarah Jones and Ashley Lail from North Texas. Cantler was also chosen as the tournament MVP helping guide the Mean Green to undefeated record in the tournament.
