Seven Garner All-ACC Honors

CLEMSON, S.C. – Seven Clemson Softball players earned All-ACC honors, as announced by the Atlantic Coast Conference on Wednesday. Junior Maddie Moore and redshirt senior Alia Logoleo both earned first team nods, while McKenzie Clark, Alex Brown and Regan Spencer garnered second team honors. Valerie Cagle and Millie Thompson round out the Tigers as third team selections.


Moore picked up her first All-ACC honor as a first team infielder. She finished the regular season with a team-high .438 batting average, .740 slugging percentage and .522 on-base percentage. The Loomis, Calif., native finished the 24-game slate with 32 hits, including five home runs, five doubles and one triple, scored 24 runs and clocked in 20 RBIs. She also leads the Tigers with seven stolen bases in ACC play. Seeing time at both second base and at shortstop, she tallied 34 putouts with 51 assists.

Logoleo joined Moore as a first team infielder. The Nashville, Tenn., native held a .394 average with 28 hits and 23 RBIs. Her .648 slugging percentage trails only Moore on the Tigers’ roster after adding five home runs and three doubles to her resume. The redshirt senior drew nine walks at the plate, scored 15 runs and stole two bases after contributing one sac fly and one sac hit to the Clemson offense. She played both shortstop and third base in conference play and recorded 30 putouts and 49 assists. This is her fourth All-ACC honor – first as a First Team selection.

Clark (Myakka City, Fla.) earned her third All-ACC career nod after making the team in both 2021 and 2022. The centerfielder contributed 41 putouts and one assist defensively, and offensively added 29 hits that included three home runs, three doubles and one triple. The second team honoree maintained a .363 average, scored a team-high 26 runs and finished with 20 RBIs. Her two stolen bases in ACC action secured the Clemson career record for stolen bases with 46 on her career. She finished the regular season second in the ACC in sac flies, fifth in hit by pitch and seventh in runs per game.

Brown’s second team selection is her first All-ACC honor as a Clemson Tiger and second on her career after being a second team selection last season at North Carolina. The Savannah, Ga., native finished with a .373 average after recording 31 hits, including three home runs, three doubles and two triples, for a .566 slugging percentage and .436 on-base percentage. She scored 16 runs in 2024 and added 14 RBIs while drawing nine walks. Playing at every infield position except first base, the junior finished with 23 putouts and 45 assists.

Spencer rounds out the second team selections after earning six wins in the circle this season. A first-time All-ACC honoree, Spencer finished with 59.0 innings of work while only allowing 12 extra-base hits. She struck out 30 batters and limited opponents to a .260 average while maintaining a 2.85 ERA. The Lexington, N.C., native made 14 appearances, including 10 starts, finished with one solo shutout, one combined and one save after only allowing 24 earned runs on the year and only conceding 16 walks.

Cagle earns her fourth All-ACC honor with a third team selection. The Yorktown, Va., native batted .365 in 17 games with 19 hits, including three home runs and three doubles. She drew a team-high 11 walks and contributed 16 RBIs with 15 runs scored. A dual threat, the redshirt senior finished with two wins in the circle in six appearances. Through her 25.2 innings of work, she pitched one solo shutout and struck out 21 batters while only allowing four extra-base hits. Defensively, she contributed 77 putouts and four assists.

Thompson rounds out the Tigers’ selections as a third team honoree. Earning her third All-ACC nod, Thompson finished with three wins in 12 appearances. Through her 44.2 innings of work, the senior struck out 32 batters while only allowing 14 earned runs. Her 2.19 ERA leads the Tigers in 2024 while limiting opponents to a .277 average and only seven extra-base hits. She has shined by limiting the number of free bases given this season by only walking five batters in ACC play. Through the complete 49-game season, the Bedford, Va., native is fourth in the NCAA in strikeout-to-walk ratio (8.88) and fourth in walks allowed per seven innings (0.67), both of which lead the ACC.

The Tigers’ seven selections in 2024 mark the most players to receive postseason conference accolades in the program’s short infancy and second-most end of year conference awards trailing only the 2021 season when Clemson tallied nine total conference honors (five All-ACC and four All-Freshman). All-ACC is voted on by each institution’s head coaches and consist of 15 First Team, 15 Second Team and 15 Third Team members. Coaches vote based on ACC stats only.

The Tigers return to the field on Thursday, May 9 at 1:30 p.m. for their first game of the 2024 ACC Tournament. Clemson, the five seed, is slated to take on the fourth seeded Virginia Cavaliers on ACC Network in Durham, N.C.
