Sophomore outfielder Daryan Torix, freshman infielder Kristen Wade, freshman infielder Kenzie Kallio, sophomore pitcher Maddie Massanelli, and freshman catcher Baylor Miles earned first team and freshman outfielder Eila Infante and sophomore infielder Kenzi Spurgin second team.
Sophomore pitcher Maddie Brown, sophomore infielder Makaila Leonhart, freshman infielder Lexi McClellan, and sophomore infielder Maggy Rieschick earned all-tournament.
