Cea Knox played softball at USC Salkehatchie from 2007 to 2009. She was a pitcher for the Indians, and she holds the following career pitching records at USC Salkehatchie: most wins; most innings pitched; most shutouts; most saves; most games started; most complete games; and most strikeouts. Additionally, she has the second-lowest career ERA . She also was a strong hitter, with the most career doubles and second-most career hits, walks, and RBIs. She holds third place in total games played, as well as third place in career batting average, at bats, and runs.
While at USC Salkehatchie, Cea became the first player from our campus to earn the honor of being named to the ESPN the Magazine Academic All-America, All-District 3 College Division Softball Team as selected by the National Association of Sports Information Directors. That selection was for all colleges in the district , and a junior-college-level player such as Cea being selected is very rare—in fact, she was the only junior-college-level player selected that year. Cea was also named USC Salkehatchie’s Female Athlete of the Year in 2009.
Beyond softball, Cea was involved in campus activities of all kinds. For example, she served in the Student Government Association as a senator her freshman year and as vice president her sophomore year.
After receiving her Associate of Arts degree from USC Salkehatchie with high honors and being named an NJCAA Academic All-American, Cea attended Francis Marion University, where she also played softball, and where she received her Bachelor of Arts degree in 2011. She will graduate this May from Florida Coastal School of Law in Florida.
