The USA Softball Association released its pre-season All-American Watch List recently. Michigan has 3 players on that list: Sr. Amanda Chidester, Sr. Bree Evans and Jr. Ashley Lane. This is a very impressive feat for a team located in the "Snowy North".
While Cal, Florida, Michigan, Tennessee and Texas lead the way among universities with three athlete representatives each, the Big 12 Conference and the Pacific-12 (Pac-12) Conference have six member schools represented. Northwestern (2) and Nebraska (1) are the only other B1G school that has players on the list.
Congrats to Chiddy, Bree and Ashley. You have made us all proud. Keep up the good work and we look forward to seeing you starting this Friday.
