Head Coach Missy Farr-Kaye's team adds to their Pac-12 leading 106 All-Conference honorees dating back to 1987, the first year the sport was sponsored. That includes Farr-Kaye, who made the 1990 All-Conference Second Team. She has also coached 49 All-Conference players as both an assistant and head coach.
"We are extremely proud of the five Sun Devils who received All-Conference honors," Coach Farr-Kaye remarked. "They join a long list of incredible names that have paved the way for this program."
A total of 130 Sun Devils have now earned a spot on an All-Conference Team since the award was established back in 1980. The five selections this season are the most from Arizona State since the 2009 season. Graduate student Olivia Mehaffey becomes a four-time Pac-12 All-Conference Team member.
