MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - Middle Tennessee softball outfielders Jennifer Grybash and Trish White were voted to the Sun Belt All-Conference Second Team as announced by the conference office on Wednesday.

She has started all 49 games for Middle Tennessee and has maintained an above .300 batting average. She is currently hitting .333 overall and .292 against Sun Belt opponents. Grybash's 12 doubles leads the team and ties her for second in the conference.

White, a sophomore form Mt. Juliet, has split her time between centerfield and the pitching circle since the middle of March.

White is hitting a blazing .357 against conference teams with two doubles and six RBI. Overall she is batting .297.

As a team, the Blue Raiders won the All-Sun Belt Academic Award. The cumulative GPA for the team, in the 2003-04 academic year, was 3.13.
