A season cut short by injury did not stop Langley's Danielle Raison from earning honourable mentions as a conference all-star.

At the time of her injury, Raison was leading the SFU Clan women's softball team with a .354 batting average, a home run and 11 RBIs.

She had started all 22 games at shortstop for the Clan.

"I'm pleased to see Danielle (Raison) recognized even though she had an injury shortened season," said SFU coach Mike Renney.

"She was leading our team offensively and was on base and was on pace to be recognized even higher. She was a leader on and off the field, a team captain, our starting shortstop and cleanup hitter. She was dearly missed when she left the line-up and will be welcomed back next year."

Raison enters her senior season next year.
