BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – UAB sophomore shortstop Caitlin Attfield was named to the South Alabama Mardi Gras Invitational All-Tournament Team following her performance at the plate this past weekend in Mobile.

Attfield hit .462 with six hits in 13 at-bats at the South Alabama Mardi Gras Invitational. The sophomore and reigning Conference USA Freshman of the Year picked up UAB’s only hit of the opening game of the tournament against South Alabama, and followed with a 3-for-4 performance in the Blazers’ second game in Mobile.

She also stole two bases in four attempts as the Blazers finished the weekend 1-3 with a 4-1 win over Austin Peay.

The Blazers will be back in action this weekend, Feb. 14-16, as they travel to Waco, Texas for the Getterman Classic.
