Former Bridge City standout and Stephen F. Austin University freshman ace Kassidy Wilbur was named the Freshman of the Year on the All-Southland Conference Softball Team that was announced Monday.

She was also selected to the Second Team All-Conference unit.

Claiming Southland Pitcher of the Week accolades three times (Feb. 12, March 18, March 25), Wilbur was selected as USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Week on Feb. 12 following the opening week of her collegiate softball career. She went 4-0 and posted an unblemished 0.00 ERA with 32 strikeouts in 22 innings inside the circle, setting the program record for most strikeouts by a SFA pitcher making her debut by fanning 15 in her first collegiate start in the season opener. Wilbur needs only 53 more strikeouts to tie the program’s single season strikeout record (293). In Southland play, she ranked second in the league in strikeouts (136), opponent batting average (.197), strikeouts looking (29) and innings pitched (119.1), while third in wins (11).

Wilbur was The Orange Leader Female Athlete of the Year the last two years.
