This year's talent infusion for Utah's softball team — detailed by The Tribune's Kyle Goon just last week — received the Pac-12 Conference's mark of approval Wednesday.
Freshman second baseman Hannah Flippen was named first-team all-conference, and honorable mention nods went to freshman shortstop Anissa Urtez and freshman first baseman Bridget Castro. Junior left fielder Kate Dickman also earned honorable mention, meaning players got at least one vote for all-conference teams, and starting pitcher Sammy Cordova was a vote-getter for the All-Freshman Team. All five hail from California.
"We had one of our most successful seasons and these five led us all year," said Utah head coach Amy Hogue in a release. "I'm supper happy for each of them."
