West Georgia third baseman Yancey steps into record books

CARROLLTON, Ga. -- West Georgia senior third baseman Nicole Yancey has had a week to remember this week, as she stepped into the record books in three different categories, adding yet another chapter to an already storied four-year career.

On Thursday against Georgia College, Yancey doubled in the first game and then singled in her first at-bat of the second game, putting her as the all-time leader in total bases in the UWG record books. She exited the day with 382 career total bases, eclipsing Kim Weaver's former record of 380, set in 2008.

One day later, Yancey added another record to her resume with a first-inning home run on the road at West Florida. While she surpassed Adrienne Clay for the career home run record last season, she has been one home run shy of the single season record in two of her three seasons thus far. The homer against UWF was her 15th, tying Jessica Sanders' total from the 2005 season.

On Saturday, in game one of the doubleheader with UWF, Yancey drew her 141st career walk, tying the record Stephanie Pinto (UAH) set in the 2007 season. In her next at-bat, she set a new record with her 142nd walk to stand alone atop the GSC lists in that category. Her final at-bat was an intentional walk, just for good measure.

The walk ended up being crucial, as the Wolves tied the game on the next at-bat, then won it in extra innings, 3-2 over the Argos.
