They are now eligible to be selected to one of three All-American teams. The 2012 Division II All-American teams will be announced on NFCA.org on the evening of Wednesday, May 16.
Brown, a first-time honoree, had a huge weekend for UCSD. She was
7-for-13 (.538) with three home runs, including a pair of dingers in
UCSD's 5-0 win over No. 2-seed Cal State Monterey Bay. The sophomore is
batting .353 with a .472 on-base percentage and a team-high eight home
runs in 2012.
Lesovsky, a four-time NFCA All-West Region First Team honoree, leads the Tritons with a .392 batting average, 49 runs, 76 hits and 12 doubles. She recently batted .625 (10-for-16) in the NCAA West Region II Tournament at Cal State Monterey Bay, catapulting the Tritons into the West Super Regional this weekend with a 3-for-4 outing in the winner-take-all game against Dixie State on Sunday. Lesovsky was named All-CCAA First Team for the fourth time in her career in late April.
Gaito, a three-time NFCA All-West Region honoree and two-time First Team selection, went 4-1 with a 0.66 ERA for the Tritons at the West Region II Tournament. She's 27-9 with a conference-low 1.22 ERA so far and opponents have mustered just a .210 batting average against her. She will leave UCSD as the school's all-time leader in wins, saves, appearances, innings pitched, strikeouts and complete games.
The 13 members of the All-West Region First Team are all from teams in the California Collegiate Athletic Association.
UCSD faces No. 10 Cal State Dominguez Hills in a best-of-three series this weekend in Carson, Calif. to determine which team will advance to May 16-19's NCAA National Championships in Louisville, Ky.
