May 28, 2008
STARKVILLE, Miss. - Senior Anjelica Selden and freshman GiOnna DiSalvatore were named first-team Louisville Slugger/NFCA All-Americans on Wednesday, while junior Amanda Kamekona and sophomore Megan Langenfeld both earned third-team accolades.
The four All-American awards for the Bruins are the most since 2003. UCLA has now earned 92 All-American awards.
Selden becomes the 13th Bruin to earn at least a pair of first-team honors (Selden named first team in 2006) and the 16th Bruin to receive at least three All-American awards.
The honors for DiSalvatore, Kamekona and Langenfeld are the first for all three. DiSalvatore's award marks the first time since 2001 that a UCLA freshman has been named first-team All-American (Natasha Watley).
The Bruins begin play at the Women's College World Series on Thursday against Arizona at 6 p.m. PT. The game will be aired live on ESPN and Gametracker will be available on UCLABruins.com.
