Cal State softball player ineligible

It’s unfortunate that arguably the best softball player in CaI State San Bernardino history has to have her career end in such an undignified manner.

Senior infielder Britney Butler, the school’s career leader in home runs, became academically ineligible at the end of the quarter which ends her collegiate career.

Butler, a Riverside Poly graduate, hit .512 with five doubles, two triples, five home runs, 22 RBI and 29 runs scored. She had an on-base percentage of .533 and a slugging percentage of .798.

Her 43 home runs are a career record. She also ranks first in runs scored (142), second in RBI (136), third in batting average (.375), third in stolen bases (51), third in walks (80) and fourth in hits (197).

She had earned All-CCAA honors three previous years but being ineligible will likely cost her a fourth such honor.
