Trisha Ford, who previously served as the head softball coach at Fresno State, has been named head coach of the Arizona State University softball program. Vice President for University Athletics and Athletics Director Ray Anderson announced the appointment Wednesday.
Jennifer Soria cleaned up the postseason award haul for the Arizona State University softball team, earning First Team All-Pac-12 and All-West Region honors while being named a Pac-12 All-Academic Selection as well. Soria's efforts led a group of 13 Sun Devils that earned postseason awards in some fashion for the 2016 season.
The Devils entered Elimination Saturday of the Baton Rouge Regional needing two victories to advance to the regional final tomorrow and – knowing a loss in either game would mean the end of the season - went ahead and did just that. And - as only the karma deities would have it – both victories came in walk-off fashion as ASU advanced to a Regional Final for the 11th consecutive season.
