BERKELEY, Calif. -
Led by senior pitcher Kelly Anderson's second-consecutive first team selection, three California softball seniors were named to the 2005 Pacific-10 All-Academic squad, announced June 6. Joining Anderson was second team member Jessica Pamanian and honorable mention pick Kaleo Eldredge.
Anderson, named to the first team in 2004 and the second team in 2003, graduated this past May with a degree in legal studies and a 3.36 overall GPA. She won a career-high 28 games in 2005 to help Cal reach its seventh-straight Women's College World Series and has plans to attend law school in the fall. Her 83 career victories are fourth in program history.
Pamanian was a second team pick last season and an honorable mention selection as a sophomore. A four-year starter at second base, Pamanian graduated from Cal with a 3.32 GPA and a psychology degree. She leaves Cal fourth all-time in at-bats (819) and tied for fourth in games played (271).
On May 12, Anderson and Pamanian were also selected to the CoSIDA District VIII Academic All-America first team.
Eldredge, a four-year starter in center field, earned a degree in American Studies. This was her first selection to the Pac-10 All-Academic team. Eldredge departs the Bear program as the school's all-time leader in runs scored (160) and is fourth in hits (239).
The Bears (52-15) concluded their season June 4, with a 3-2, 12-inning loss to Arizona in the loser's bracket of the WCWS.
