SEWARD, Neb. – In highlighting the list of honorees announced on Thursday (May 12), the Concordia University Softball team placed outfielder Caitlyn McGarvie on the All-GPAC First team and pitcher/first baseman Camry Moore on the conference’s second team. In addition, second baseman Kylee Nixon and utility player Zoie Isom were recognized with honorable mention all-conference accolades. The four honorees were standouts in 2022 for Head Coach Tatum Edwards’ squad.

This marks back-to-back First Team All-GPAC awards for McGarvie, a Lincoln North Star High School alum and native of Valparaiso, Neb. A white-hot month of April helped make McGarvie an obvious first team choice. On the season, she batted .390 (48-for-123) with seven doubles, four triples, 13 RBIs and a team high 16 stolen bases. McGarvie also put up an on-base percentage of .483 and a slugging percentage of .512. In the field, McGarvie notched 32 putouts. In 101 career collegiate games, McGarvie has totaled 95 hits, 57 runs, 17 doubles, four triples and owns a .361 batting average.

In her astounding career, Moore has twice been named Second Team All-GPAC and was selected as First Team All-GPAC in 2021. The Crete High School product led the way for the 2022 Bulldogs from both a hitting and pitching standpoint. At the plate, she batted .425 (62-for-146) with 39 runs, 10 doubles, three triples, a home run and 42 RBIs to go along with a .472 on-base percentage and .555 slugging percentage. In the circle, Moore went 13-11 with a 1.94 ERA and 120 strikeouts (against just eight walks) in 144.1 innings. Moore fired a no-hitter against Graceland University (Iowa) back on March 4 and enjoyed a stretch in early April that saw her toss three-straight complete games without allowing an earned run. Moore concluded her career with program all-time offensive rankings of second in RBIs (127), fifth in runs scored (122), sixth in batting average (.386), seventh in home runs (15), eighth in hits (172) and 10th in doubles (32). As a pitcher, Moore’s program career rankings are second in ERA (2.06), third in wins (52), sixth in strikeouts (341) and sixth in innings pitched (489).

A York High School product, Nixon played alongside Moore for each of the past four seasons. Both were instrumental in helping the program reach the 2021 national tournament. Nixon is a two-time Honorable Mention All-GPAC award winner. This past season, Nixon batted .289 (43-for-149) with 32 runs, 10 doubles, one triple, two home runs and 15 RBIs while slugging .409. At second base, Nixon successfully handled 156 of 161 chances (.969). In 137 career games as a Bulldog, Nixon batted .326 (133-for-408) with 96 runs, 30 doubles, three triples, 10 home runs and 72 RBIs.

Isom earned a starting role as a freshman. The native of Fillmore, Calif., topped the team with four homers on the season. In 43 games of action, Isom hit .297 (35-for-118) with 12 runs, six doubles and 28 RBIs. She slugged .449 and worked 14 walks. Isom registered multiple hits in nine separate games.
