Three Softball Players Garner All-Pac-10 Honors
May 19, 2004
TEMPE, Ariz. - Arizona State University softball players Phelan Wright, Valerie Sevilla and Kristin Farber have all been named to the All-Pac-10 Conference Softball Teams, announced Wednesday by Pac-10 Commissioner Tom Hansen. Wright, who finished her stellar career as one of the program's most prolific hitters, makes her fourth straight appearance on the All-Pac-10 team and Farber her third, while Sevilla garners her first appearance.
A first-team All-Pac-10 selection at third base and one of the premier players in the country for the past four seasons, Wright again was a top-25 finalists for National Player of the Year honors. Wright, a two-time All-American, ended her career as Arizona State's all-time batting average leader (.381), all-time home run leader (40) and second in doubles (44) and RBIs (162). This past season she led the team with a .390 batting average, with 14 doubles, 13 home runs and 47 RBIs.
Sevilla, a junior outfielder, had a career year at the plate as she earned second-team All-Pac-10 accolades. She led the team with 70 hits, 17 doubles and 15 home runs, while finishing second on the team with a .363 average and 46 RBIs. Sevilla's 15 home runs and 17 doubles tied the single-season mark at ASU and her 46 RBIs ranks fourth all-time. Sevilla, who had never hit a home run before this year, also tallied a team-leading 21 RBIs with two outs, slugged three grand slams and tied for the most assists in the outfield with six.
An honorable mention All-Pac-10 choice, Farber set ASU's single-season record for stolen bases with 33 and finished her career second all-time with 80. Remarkably, in her four-year career, she was cut down only 10 times in 90 chances. This year as a senior in the outfield, Farber led the team in at-bats (215) and triples (2), finished second in runs (35) and third in hits (66) and batting average (.307). She also tied with Sevilla for the most assists in the outfield with six.
