Mack Garners SEC Community Service Team Selection

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – LSU senior pitcher Brittany Mack picked up SEC Community Service Team honors Monday as announced by the league office.

Mack created and championed the “Geaux Play” program where over 400 sporting goods items were collected at LSU softball home games for the special needs children of the Miracle League in Baton Rouge. The Miracle League kids were Brittany’s special VIP guests as part of “Geaux Play” day at the park during the Ole Miss finale on April 22. Afterwards, the special needs children joined the Tigers on the field for a game.

Mack also has been involved with Thanksgiving with the Tigers, where her team adopted an underprivileged child for the holidays. The Tigers provided gifts at a special program, while also serving a Thanksgiving style meal.

Mack has been a mainstay at Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital Visits where her team went room-to-room visiting hospital patients and their families to cheer them up with autographed posters.

During her career, Mack has earned spots on the SEC Academic Honor Roll, ESPN the Magazine Academic All-District and she was an NFCA Scholar-Athlete during her career.

On the field, Mack is one of 13 All-Americans in program history after she collected All-SEC and NFCA All South Region First-Team accolades in 2011. The senior right-hander has won four SEC Pitcher of the Week awards, most recently on March 26 of this season where she became the sixth pitcher in program history to reach 50 career victories.

LSU meets No. 6 Florida Thursday in the SEC Tournament Quarterfinals. First pitch is slated for 11 a.m. at Rhoads Stadium on the University of Alabama campus. The game will be televised by ESPN U with Cara Capuano and Michele Smith anchoring the coverage.

Every LSU postseason game will have live audio and live stats available inside the Geaux Zone on LSUsports.net. The games also will be carried live on Country Legends 104.9 FM in the Baton Rouge area with Patrick Wright and Matt Dunaway set to call the action.

Fans can follow every pitch of LSU softball this season via live in-game updates on LSU softball’s social media outlets at www.Facebook.com/lsusoftball and @lsu_softball on Twitter.
