"This is a tremendous honor for these players, who have been such a big part of our team success all year", said head coach Jacquie Joseph, now in her 24th season at MSU and recently won her 800th career game a head coach. Starting every game at third base, Alldredge is now hitting.362 and is second on the team in RBI and home runs with 40 and 10, respectively. For the season the outfielder had a.438 on-base percentage and a.448 slugging percentage.

Samford junior center fielder Shelby Maze was named to the third team of the National Fastpitch Coaches Association's (NFCA) All-Region team for the South Region, the NFCA announced Thursday. Her 12 homers rank fourth on RU's single-season records list, bringing her career total to 22 which ranks third on the career charts. She holds a.347 batting average with a.565 slugging percentage and.429 on-base rate. In a doubleheader against San Diego, she hit a walk-off homer in both games to enforce the run-rule win. Aviu ranks second in the Big 12 in doubles (18), doubles per game (0.31), hit by pitch per game (0.28) and sacrifice flies (4) while ranking third with 18.1 at-bats per strikeout.

Christner, a 2015 NFCA First Team All-American, leads the Wolverines with a career-best.414 batting average - a 101-point improvement on her 2016 average and a 21-point improvement on her previous-best 2015 average.

Mendes' inclusion marks the third straight year that an OU freshman has been on the First Team.

Hall started 26 games as the designated player as well as 23 at first base, posting a.364 batting average.

Pendley and Romero earned Second-Team honors for the second time in their respective careers. She owns career bests in all pitching categories, including an 18-3 record and 1.86 ERA, and leads MI with 43 RBI.

Pendley leads the team and conference in home runs with 13 on the year. Manuel rounded out the season with 25 RBIs and 19 runs scored. As a First Team member, Cone is now eligible for selection to 2017 NFCA Division I All-America teams.

The awards honor softball student-athletes from the NFCA's 10 regions and are voted on by the NFCA member coaches from each region.
