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.
SAN FRANCISCO - Following are the 2016 Pac-12 Conference softball All-Academic teams, announced today by Commissioner Larry Scott. To be eligible for selection to the academic team, a student-athlete must have a minimum 3.0 overall grade-point average and appear in at least 50 percent of their team’s games.
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.
The Arizona State University softball team rallied from an early deficit in the opening game of the 2016 Baton Rouge Regional, but struggled to get the offense going in a 5-2 loss to McNeese State on Friday.
