INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - Adding to numerous awards throughout the spring softball season, Saint Leo softball player McKenzie Burns picked up the 2012-13 NCAA Division II statistical title for Stolen Bases per game.

For nearly the entire season, Burns led the nation in stolen bases per game, earning 54 stolen bases throughout the Lions' 53-game schedule. Her final stolen bases per game percentage came out to 1.02.

In addition to Burns' national recognition on the bases, she was selected to the All-Sunshine State Conference First Team as an outfielder, while also collecting NFCA All-South Region Second Team honors.

Along with her regional and national honors, Burns shattered Saint Leo's all-time record for steals in single season, beating the previous record-holder by 19 stolen bases.

Burns will return to the Lions roster in 2013-14 as a junior outfielder.
