In the 35 years of collegiate women’s softball at St. Thomas Aquinas College, Katheen Rooney Metcalf rates as one of the school’s most talented players ever.After making a name for herself as an All-County player at North Rockland High and the OTB Fillies, Rockland’s first major travel softball team, Metcalf blossomed at STAC. Her four-year collegiate career was truly remarkable. She was the team’s star shortstop and helped the Lady Spartans record an impressive 70-35 cumulative record including two of the college’s winningest seasons in history – 19-5 in 1989 and 21-8 in 1990.But it was with the bat where Metcalf truly excelled. In her sophomore season in 1988, Metcalf batted an amazing .511 that still stands as the best single-season batting average in STAC history. Her lifetime collegiate average is a staggering .463!Since graduating in 1990, 29 years ago, nine of her offensive records still stand! This is especially impressive since Metcalf’s teams typically played 30 games a season and future STAC teams have played as many as 50 games a season. Despite this inequity, Metcalf’s name dominates the program’s record book with these marks:n All-time leader in career batting average
