GREENVILLE, S.C.- Sailfish junior outfielder Kara Anderson made quite a first impression on Palm Beach Atlantic softball fans this past week with her electric start to her PBA softball career. A junior college transfer from Indian River State College, Anderson finished an impressive 10-for-18 (.556 average) at the plate during her first week wearing the Blue and White as she was named the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) Player of the Week for the week of January 30th-February 5th.
Sitting atop the Sailfish starting lineup as the team’s leadoff hitter, Anderson set the table for a number of PBA rallies but also in producing runs as she led the Fish with eight runs driven in for the week.
Anderson, a native of Moore Haven, Florida collected three triples and a stolen base as she used her excellent speed to put pressure on the defense.
An injury over the weekend may have slowed Anderson a bit but if only temporary as she and her teammates are gearing up for another busy weekend ahead. The Sailfish, under sixth-year head coach Kimmy Bloemers will travel to Clearwater, Florida this weekend to participate in the Eckerd College Invitational Tournament.
The Fish will play five games over three days with each contesting presenting an impressive challenge. The team sits at 4-2 through the early stages of the season.
