College of Charleston senior Kristie Shifflett was picked to the All-Southern Conference softball first team, one of four Cougars getting league honors.

Shifflett, a designated player, led the team with a .381 batting average, .664 slugging percentage, .525 on-base percentage, 16 doubles, 38 walks, and 51 hits.

Shifflett's sister, Amber, a redshirt-senior second baseman, was one of three Cougars named to the second team, joining sophomore outfielder Amanda Lonergan and sophomore first baseman Kelley Dillon, a former Hanahan High School standout. The Cougars' four selections tied for most with Chattanooga, Elon and Appalachian State.

Guard Chris Grier of Decatur, Ga., signed to play next season for Charleston Southern, Buccaneers men's head coach Barclay Radebaugh said.

Grier, of Columbia High School, is a 6-3, 175-pounder who should be an immediate contributor. He was a first-team all-region pick and McDonald's All-American nominee and played in Georgia's all-star game. Last season, he posted 15 points, five assists and five rebounds a game. Grier helped Columbia go 28-5 en route to a Class AAA state championship.
