Louisville, Ken. – Junior Dani Gilmore has been named to the All-Pacific Region First Team, the National Fastpitch Coaches Association announced today. The announcement comes one day after Gilmore was named to the Pac-12 Conference First Team and three days after she earned Pac-12 Player of the Week Honors.
Gilmore is the first Oregon State softball player to earn All-Region First Team honors since Cambria Miranda received the award in 2007. Gilmore’s .407 batting average was the fourth-best in school history, and her .700 slugging percentage was the second-best ever recorded by an Oregon State player. Gilmore led the Beavers with 38 runs, 11 doubles, eight home runs and 40 RBIs. She finished the season with a .491 on-base percentage, and continued her strong defensive career, as she made just two errors while starting all 49 games.
Gilmore finished the 2014 campaign with her name already etched into the Oregon State record book. The West Hills, Calif., native sits fourth on Oregon State’s career runs scored list (124), fifth on OSU’s career batting average list (.336), second on Oregon State’s walks list (98) and is tied for eighth in home runs (25).
