Knight becomes Grace’s career hits leader

WINONA LAKE, Ind. – Grace senior Clarissa Knight secured her spot as one of Grace’s all-time best offensive players on Saturday.

With a single in the second game against Huntington, Knight recorded her 261st career hit to take over the No. 1 spot in program history for hits.

Knight’s 261 hits surpasses the previous record of 260, held by Brooke Shell who played from 2013-15.

“I could not be more proud of her. It’s exciting to see her succeed because of how hard she works and because she wants to succeed for her teammates,” said Grace head coach Nora Reece. “She uses softball as an act of worship. CK is an extremely selfless player and sets the tone for the rest of our team.”

Knight is currently batting .387 with 36 hits in 32 games. For her career, she ranks No. 1 in all-time hits and doubles (38), No. 2 in triple (18), and No. 3 in home runs (8) and stolen bases (52).

Additionally, Knight holds the single-season record for most RBIs in a season and also has the No. 2 and No. 10 spots for single-season batting average.
