MIAMI SHORES, Fla.--Barry University softball players Sarah Broeseker and Paula Mackin were named to the 2013 CoSIDA/Capital One Academic All-South Region team. They now advance to the Capital One Academic All-America® Team ballot, where first-, second- and third-team All-America honorees will be selected later this month.

Broeseker, an infielder, led the Bucs and the Sunshine State Conference with a .423 average. She scored 32 runs, drove in 32 runs and led the team with 13 doubles, four triples and 19 extra base hits. She carries a 3.67 GPA in pre-professional biology and plans to attend medical school. She ranks in the top-10 in 12 school career offensive categories, including second in doubles, third in total bases, fourth in hits, eighth in RBI and 10th in runs scored. Her community service includes MCCL tent Light the Night, Breast Cancer Walk and Light the Night Walk for Leukemia.

Mackin, a designated player, has been with the Bucs for five years after a medical red-shirt in 2009. She has a 3.64 GPA in chemistry. She is one of only a handful of four-time scholar All-Americans, having been selected by the NFCA in each of her first four years.
