Recent Saint Mary’s College graduate and former Grosse Pointe South student-athlete Morgan Bedan was a recipient of a special award as announced by the College’s Department of Athletics.

A four-year member of the Belles softball team, Bedan, a Grosse Pointe Park resident, was named the 2013 Marvin Wood Outstanding Senior Athlete in a reception earlier this month.

According to the honor, Bedan has been a four-year starter, starting all 149 games behind the plate that the Belles have played since the 2010 season.

She began her career recording her first hit, a home-run, in her very first at-bat.

A two-time All-MIAA Second-Team honoree, Bedan moved into fifth place in career RBIs and finished her career tied for eighth in home-runs. She had 41 multi-hit games in her career and was the winning catcher 87 times wearing a Saint Mary’s uniform. Her batting average during her four years was an impressive .332.

She threw out 16 base runners attempting to steal bases on her. She caught 952.1 innings, been a part of 2,857 outs, faced 4,471 batters, and caught more than 14,000 pitches while having only committed 22 errors.
