Senior third baseman Meghan Harman and sophomore shortstop Stephanie Maciel led the way with first team honors while Stephanie Crist, Alex Finie and Sterling Shuster were named to the second team.
Harman, who was a first team All-Pacific Coast Softball Conference selection as a junior, was the Lions' leader at the plate all season long, pacing the battery with a .366 batting average, 45 hits, 32 runs and 27 RBIs. She also finished the year with a .675 slugging percentage and .470 on base percentage. In WCC play, Harman batted .378 with 17 hits, including five doubles and one home run.
