Senior Krista Colburn was named to ESPN.com's Preseason First-Team All-American squad on Monday. It is the second preseason honor for Colburn, who was named to the USA Softball Player of the Year Watch List last week.
Earning a second-team All-American award last year, Colburn had her best season in Westwood as a junior with a team-best .382 average to go along with seven homers and 32 RBI. Colburn's name has been penciled in every starting lineup for the last three seasons, a total of 174 consecutive games.
Colburn and the Bruins open up their 2008 season this weekend hosting the Stacy Winsberg Memorial Tournament at Easton Stadium. The Bruins face Nevada (10 a.m.) and Oklahoma (12:30 p.m.) on Friday, Santa Clara (1 p.m.) and UC Santa Barbara (3:30 p.m.) on Saturday and Oklahoma again on Sunday at 9:30 a.m.
