MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – The Peach Belt Conference (PBC) held its year-end awards banquet Thursday night at Georgia College, with GC Softball bringing in four All-PBC Awards.

The Bobcats put three on the first team and one on the second. First baseman Faith Flanders (Dublin), second baseman Hannah Coursey (Sugar Hill) and outfielder Danielle Bernstein (Cumming) took spots on the first team with outfielder Holland Coursey (Sugar Hill) adding second-team honors.

The All-PBC honor is the third of Bernstein's career, earning second team as a freshman and first team as a sophomore. Bernstein is hitting .378 with 39 runs and 21 stolen bases. The most recent three-time All-PBC pick for Georgia College was Abi LeRoy last season.

This is the second-straight for Flanders, who is hitting .389 with five home runs and 48 RBIs.

Both Hannah Coursey and Holland Coursey bring in their first career All-PBC awards. Hannah Coursey is hitting .347 with 28 RBIs and 26 runs, while Holland brings a .379 average with 21 RBIs and 35 runs scored.
