On Sunday, the Pac-12 Conference released its softball awards that included All Pac-12 teams and awards. Six Sun Devils were named to the All-Conference Teams.

Maddi Hackbarth was the lone representative on the First Team. The catcher finished the regular season with 20 home runs and 58 RBIs, the most of any Pac-12 player, and she’s in the top-10 nationally for each category.

Her .397 batting average was also the third-best of qualified Pac-12 hitters.

Outfielder Makenna Harper earned All-Second Team honors, the only Sun Devil that made that squad. Harper developed a knack for hitting clutch home runs against key opponents. She ended the season with nine home runs, 39 RBIs and a .330 batting average.

Kindra Hackbarth headlined the All-Third Team and received her third All-Conference honors in maroon and gold. She ended the regular season at a .329 batting average with 10 home runs, 28 RBIs and 17 stolen bases out of the leadoff spot.

Jazmine Hill joined Kindra Hackbarth on the All-Third Team. Hill was second on the team in batting average at .336. She also added nine home runs and 39 RBIs. She was tied for second with Kindra Hackbarth on the team in total bases.

Hill was also named to the All-Freshman team along with pitchers Allison Royalty and Lindsay Lopez. Royalty led ASU in innings pitched (124.2) and strikeouts (121), bolstering a 3.20 ERA across the season. Lopez had a 2.35 ERA in 122.1 innings and had 84 strikeouts.

The Sun Devils will await their postseason fate on Sunday during the NCAA Selection Show on ESPN2 that will begin at 6 p.m. Arizona Time.
