After a highly successful freshman year in Delta State softball, Memrie Corley, exploded for yet another stellar season, her second in Cleveland.

Corley who started 53 games this season for the Lady Statesmen, finished the season with a .308 batting average to go along with 45 hits. This season she made 146 plate appearances, and it was enough for a 2nd team All-Gulf South 2014.

She helped the Delta State softball team to a 31-win season and also helped make Lady Statesmen history as the first team since 2002 to make an appearance in the NCAA South Region Tournament.

At the start of the season, Corley was named the Gulf South Player of the Week after going 8 for 10 at the plate in best of three against the University of West Georgia. In that series, Corley had eight singles to go along with an outstanding defensive effort.

A former standout softball player at Carroll Academy, Corley had an great freshmen season at DSU.

Starting 39 games last year for the Lady Statesmen, Corley batted over .300 with 30 hits in 100 at-bats.

She posted a .986 fielding percentage in the Delta State outfield, and as a pitcher she had a 2.10 ERA in four appearances.

Corley was a dominant player for several years at Carroll Academy, where she was also a pitcher.

During her tenure at Carroll Academy, she was named District 2-AA MVP, All-District and Team MVP following her sophomore season in which she batted .446. Corley also finished the season with a 1.88 ERA. She was named Second Team All-State in her junior season, and she finished her career at Carroll Academy as one of the best seasons in the history of the school. That year Corley was named All-District and to the All-Tournament Team selection at the MAIS State Tournament. That year, she batted .545 and was named District 1-AA MVP, All-District, MAIS All-Star and MAIS All-Star Tournament MVP.

Last week, Corley was named All Academic Gulf South Conference with a 3.8 grade point average.
