OKLAHOMA CITY - University of Arizona shortstop Lovie Jung and pitcher Alicia Hollowell were named to the Women's College World Series All-Tournament Team for their efforts in UA's tie for a third-place finished here this past weekend.
Jung, a senior, led the Wildcats in hitting in Oklahoma City with a .417 average and five hits, plus tied for the team high with two runs batted in. She hit .583 in UA's eight NCAA playoff games.
Hollowell, a freshman, threw all 32 and one-third innings UA played in the World Series, and notched a 2-2 record. She was one of four pitchers who carried the bulk of the load for her team, including champion UCLA's Keira Goerl, California's Kelly Anderson and Texas' Cat Osterman.
Goerl, who pitched a no-hitter in the Bruins' championship victory over California on Monday, earned Most Outstanding Player honors.
Others named to the 2003 all-tournament team were UCLA's Natasha Watley and Tairia Mims; California's Anderson, Vicky Galindo, Chelsea Spencer and Veronica Nelson; Osterman and Tamara Poppe of Texas; and Jennifer Stump of Oklahoma.
The two selections for Arizona give it a total of 49 All-World Series honors since the event began in 1982, second to UCLA's 71 all-star selections.
