Lewis was a four-year (1981-84) hitting star from softball’s pitching dominant era before the mound was moved back and the ball enlivened to spike the offenses. She was a three-time All-American (1981, 1982 and 1984) and had a career batting average of .354 with 25 home runs and 138 RBI when TEAMS hit less than 20 home runs per year.
In current CSF career rankings she remains first in hits (257), doubles (53) and triples (20); second in slugging percentage (.585), walks (89) and runs (149); third in on-base percentage (.425) and RBI (138); fourth in batting average (.354) and seventh in home runs (25). She also holds the single-season record for hits (97). During her tenure, the Titans compiled a 220-44-2 (.831) record, won four conference championships, three regional titles and placed nationally second twice and third once.
