Harrington, Wampler, Bosinger Earn D2CCA All-West Region Honors
LA JOLLA, Calif. – The No. 14 University of California San Diego softball team has had three players named to the Division II Conference Commissioners Association (D2CCA) All-West Region team. Sherriah Harrington and Robyn Wampler earned first team honors, while Keila Bosinger received second team accolades. The organization announced its selections on Wednesday evening, as voted on by NCAA Division II Sports Information Directors.
Both Harrington and Wampler are repeat All-West Region selections, as they earned second-team honors during their freshmen campaigns. The pair was also named to this year’s All-California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) First Team, as was Bosinger.
Harrington has continued her hot hitting from her freshman season, as the utility player is currently batting .363 and slugging .548. Both of those marks rank second on the team as well as 10th in the CCAA. Harrington’s power at the plate has been crucial for the Tritons, as her five home runs tie her for the team lead, and her 14 total extra-base hits have helped her net 25 RBIs, which also tie her for the team high. At second base, Harrington holds a .954 fielding percentage on the season.
Like Harrington, Wampler picked up where she left off from last season. The lefty’s 1.67 ERA tops the CCAA leaderboard, while her opposing batting average (.205), strikeouts (139), and wins (18) all rank second. Wampler has been a workhorse for the Tritons, tossing 180.2 innings as well as 19 complete games. During her time in the pitcher’s circle, Wampler’s control has been impeccable. Facing 662 batters throughout the season, the sophomore has walked just 39.
Bosinger follows in Harrington and Wampler’s footsteps, tabbed for the second team in her freshman year. The Chula Vista native has been a force to be reckoned with at the plate. Her .636 slugging percentage and .393 batting average rank fourth and fifth in the CCAA, respectively. Additionally, her .460 on-base percentage is good for ninth in the conference. All three of those marks are also team highs. Thanks to her success at the plate, Bosinger put together a team-best 22-consecutive game reached base streak during the season.
Tomorrow, Bosinger, Harrington, and Wampler will look to continue their success during the NCAA West Sub-Regional. Second-seeded UC San Diego is slated to face seventh seed Central Washington at 1 p.m. at Triton Softball Field, as the Tritons host the regional competition.
