Ascension softball players continue to make their mark at the collegiate level.

Former Dutchtown standout and current starter for Copiah-Lincoln Community College Jessica Crum was recently selected to the Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges All-State team.

Crum was an honorable mention All-State player for Dutchtown during her senior year. She batted .424 with nine home runs and 40 RBIs.

In her freshman campaign at Copiah-Lincoln, the catcher and designated hitter was a first-team MACJC All-State selection.

She made school history as she broke the single-season home-run record with 16 home runs--shattering the old mark of 10.

Crum also led the team with 59 RBIs. That was an amazing 40 more than the next closest hitter.

Along with leading the team in homers and runs batted in, she also led the squad in hits with 49, batting average at .480, plate appearances with 133, walks with 28 and she was tied for the team lead with eight doubles.

Crum's superb freshman year really took off early in the season when she was named the national player of the week following an opening week where she hit two homers and drove in a phenomenal 14 runs.

Only one of Crum's teammates in Lauren Brashier joined her on the MACJC All-State team. Brashier was named to the second team.
