Four Bruins Named Easton All-Americans

Senior Anjelica Selden, junior Amanda Kamekona, sophomore Megan Langenfeld and freshman GiOnna DiSalvatore have each been named to the Easton All-American First Team. It is the second All-American honor for all four Bruins, who were also named to the NFCA All-American squad on May 28.
In addition, UCLA softball was named the Easton Softball Team of the Year.
Selden, a first-team NFCA All-American, led the team in wins (29), innings pitched (233 2/3), strikeouts (335), appearances (40), complete games (28) and shutouts (8) in 2008. Selden finishes her Bruin career first in strikeouts and eighth in Division I history with 1,441 strikeouts. She is also first in appearances and second in innings pitched, wins and complete games in UCLA history.
Kamekona was first on the team in slugging percentage (.663), runs scored (47), runs batted in (46), doubles (17), home runs (14), sacrifice hits (13) and stolen bases (8). Kamekona owned a team-best 14-game hitting streak this season and was named first-team All-Region, second-team All-Pac-10 and third-team NFCA All-American for her efforts.
Langenfeld was first on the team in on base percentage (.482) and multiple-RBI games (12), second in home runs (5) and walks (34) and third in RBI (41), earning first-team All-Region, second-team All-Pac-10 and third-team NFCA All-American honors. In the circle, Langenfeld also set a UCLA single-season record for saves with five.
DiSalvatore ranked first on the team in game-winning RBI (11), multiple-hit games (20) and hits (68), second in RBI (45) and doubles (16) and third in average (.362), slugging (.532) and home runs (4). The two-time Pac-10 Player of the Week was a member of the all-conference second-team and Pac-10 Freshman Team and also earned first-team NFCA All-American and All-Region accolades.
