Ten LMU softball players are among 72 total student-athletes named to the 2013 Pacific Coast Softball Conference Commissioner's Honor Roll.
The LMU softball team put up a fight against No. 14/19 Arizona in its lone game Friday, but a four-run first by the Wildcats was to much to rally back from in a 5-3 Lion loss at the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic.
Ten LMU softball players were among a record 138 student-athletes named to the 2012 PCSC Commissioner's Honor Roll
