Carlee Wallace Headed to Baylor

Former Auburn catcher Carlee Wallace has announced her intentions to transfer to Baylor to finish her career.

Wallace, who has a single season of eligibility remaining, was granted her release from the Tiger program and will be eligible to suit up immediately for the Bears.

One of the few holdover starters from the 2016 national runners-up Tiger team, Wallace led Auburn in 2017 with a .599 slugging percentage and collected a .333 batting average on the season.

She earned all-conference first-team, as well as SEC all-defensive team honors after the season. It was the first of each honor for her career.

Regarded as an excellent defensive backstop, Wallace has made just ten errors behind the plate in her three seasons at Auburn and owns a career fielding percentage of .983.

At Baylor, Wallace joins the 2017 Women’s College World Series-participating team’s catching corps, hoping to lock up a position that was something of a revolving door for the Bears, as junior Sydney Christensen and freshmen Maddison Kettler and Taylor Ellis all saw time at the position during the ‘17 season.
