Julie Smith, a second baseman from Fresno State, was the only other Big West Conference player on the first team. Catcher Shelly Stokes and Pitcher Carie Dever from Fresno State; pitcher Mary Letourneau from Cal State Long Beach and second baseman Trish Reimche from Nevada Las Vegas made the second team.
Gina LoPiccolo, a utility player from Fresno State who played at Sunny Hills High School, was a third-team selection.
