Two Pac-12 softball players tabbed Senior CLASS Award first team All-Americans
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - ARIZONA STATE’s Dallas Escobedo and WASHINGTON’s Kaitlin Inglesby were named first team All-Americans for the 2014 Senior CLASS Award, as announced on Friday.
Escobedo, a pitcher for the Sun Devils, has posted a 3.25 cumulative grade point average (GPA) while pursuing two degrees in Special Education and Family & Human Development. She volunteers with multiple programs in the Arizona State community, including Race for the Cure and Fantasy Flight. A Pac-12 All-Academic honoree, the senior was the winning pitcher at the 2011 Women’s College World Series and took the Sun Devils to three straight WCWS appearances. An All-American in 2011, 2013 and 2014, Escobedo also earned Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week three times and has been the NFCA and USA Softball National Player of the Week once each.
Inglesby, a pitcher on the Husky staff, held a 3.08 cumulative GPA, majoring in medical anthropology and global health. Inglesby was born with 80% hearing loss and wears hearing aids in both ears. She is heavily involved in the UW and local communities, volunteering twice a week tutoring deaf and hard-of-hearing children at a local middle school while also working with Coins for Kids, which helps raise money for local Seattle non-profit organizations. The senior is one of the top two-way players in collegiate softball history, having earned first team All-American, All-Pacific Region and All-Pac-12 in previous years.
