Aggie softball touts five all-region performers

COLLEGE STATION, TX (KXXV) -

Five members of the Texas A&M softball team earned National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) All-South Region Team honors, it was announced Thursday.

Samantha Show and Tori Vidales were named to the first team, while Trinity Harrington, Sarah Hudek and Ashley Walters earned third team accolades.

The awards honor softball student-athletes from the Association’s 10 regions with first, second and third-team selections. NFCA member coaches from each respective region voted on the teams, and all the honorees now become eligible for selection to the 2018 NFCA Division I All-American squads.

Show, who was voted into the DP/Pitcher spot, is batting .274 with three home runs and 22 RBI. In the circle, the three-time All-South Region selection holds an 11-5 record with a 2.35 ERA and 73 strikeouts. The junior ranks 10th all-time in program history with 364 strikeouts in her career.

Vidales has started in every game at first base and leads the team in six offensive categories this season including home runs (11), runs scored (37), hits (56) and batting average (.346) and currently ranks fifth in the SEC in RBI with 53. The La Porte, Texas, native has climbed to the top of the record books as she shattered the program’s all-time RBI record earlier this season, tallying 210 so far. The senior also holds the total bases record with 464 in her career and ranks second all-time in runs (191) and home runs (62) and third in hits (239) and walks (161).

Harrington has thrown 11 complete games, six of which were shutouts, and is 13-5 on the season while boasting a 1.80 ERA. The senior has struck out a team-leading 81 batters in 124.1 innings and 22 appearances for the Aggies.

Starting all 56 games for the Aggies, Hudek leads the team in doubles with 11 and is just behind Vidales with a .329 batting average. The sophomore has recorded 53 hits, 25 RBI and has blasted six home runs.

Walters powers the Aggies with seven doubles and is batting .319 with 53 hits and 34 RBI. The Center Point, Texas, native holds the record for most doubles in her career in program history with 49. This marks the third time the senior has earned All-Region honors.
