Two Utah State [University] softball players have garnered end of season honors from the Western Athletic Conference as senior infielder Christine Thomsen was named to the first-team, while sophomore outfielder Hailey Froton earned second-team honors as announced by conference officials Wednesday [May 8, 2013].

 

Thomsen finished the season batting .387 in conference action and .425 for the season as her overall batting average was the highest of any player in the WAC. This is her second-straight first-team all-WAC honor as she was named a member of the 2012 all-WAC first-team as well. Thomsen, who also earned second-team Easton All-American honors, is the first player in USU history to earn first-team all-conference honors twice in her career.

 

Froton received her first all-conference honors of her career, as the sophomore collected second-team all-WAC honors for this season’s performance. Froton finished with a .316 batting average in conference action as well as a .304 average overall. Froton also recorded five triples this season, which is tied for the most by any player in the WAC.

 

New Mexico State’s Staci Rodriguez was named WAC Player of the Year, while San Jose State’s Amanda Pridmore was named WAC Pitcher of the Year. WAC Freshman of the Year was awarded to Louisiana Tech’s Anna Cross, while SJSU’s Peter Turner earned Coach of the Year honors after guiding the Spartans to the regular season title as well as the No. 1 seed heading into this week’s WAC Tournament in Ruston, La.

 

New Mexico State led the way with six players on the All-WAC teams, followed by Texas State with five and San Jose State and Louisiana Tech with four each. The complete teams are listed below.
