OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. – Senior infielder Aubrey Leach has earned Division I Third-Team All-America accolades for the 2019 season, the National Fastpitch Coaches Association announced on Wednesday.

After another solid campaign which saw her bat .411 with 72 hits, 23 RBI and score 65 runs, Leach picks up All-America honors for the second time in her career.

“Being recognized as an All-American is a tremendous honor,” co-head coach Karen Weekly said. “Aubrey is most deserving. She has been one of the hardest workers and most dedicated players to ever wear the Lady Vol uniform. Ralph and I are blessed to have coached her these last four years.”

The Woodlands, Texas native led the Lady Vols in batting average (.411), runs scored (65), hits (72), walks (44) and stolen bases (20). She was the only player to start all 60 games this season. Leach ends her career as Tennessee’s all-time leader in runs scored (255) and walks (164).

She also earned Second Team All-America accolades from the Senior CLASS Award on Wednesday, which recognizes achievements both on and off the field.

With her selection, it is the 36th All-America nod in program history. Leach is the 12th Lady Vol to earn multiple NFCA All-America honors during her career.
