Mabry was a second-team NFCA All-American as a junior last year and also earned all-region, All-State, and All-ODAC honors. She hit .395 with 10 home runs and 36 RBI last year as Lynchburg went 30-14 and earned an at-large bid to the NCAA Division III national tournament.

The slugger helped Lynchburg start the 2019 season strong Saturday with three hits, three RBI, and a stolen base as the Hornets swept Methodist on the road.
