UTEP Softball boasts 10 Easton/NFCA All-America Scholar Athletes

Thanks to their performance on and off the diamond, the UTEP Softball team has earned a roster full of honors.

Miners Pamala Baber, Pate Cathey, Kacey Duffield, Mariah Ellis, Sky Estrada, Linda Garcia, Allie Johnson, Bryana Munoz, Nadya Orozco and Jordyn Quevedo were all recipients of the Easton/National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) All-American Scholar-Athlete award for the 2018-19 academic year.

Officials share that this is the most Easton/NFCA All-America Scholar athletes in program history.

Seniors Baber and Johnson, as well as Miner-Alumna Ellis are recipients of their third NFCA honor.

This is the second NFCA recognition for senior Duffield, while Cathey, Estrada, Garcia, Munoz, Orozco and Quevedo are first-time honorees.

This is the first time in history that the NFCA has honored over 8,000 student-athletes (8,161), with 1,769 being Division I athletes.

Established in 1983, the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) is the professional growth organization for fastpitch softball coaches from all competitive levels of play.

Although collegiate coaches comprised the majority of the organization’s membership in the early days, today they are joined by high school, travel ball, professional and international coaches, along with umpires, clubs, businesses and fans of fastpitch softball.

Seven UTEP Softball Players Garner NFCA All-America Scholar-Athlete Honors

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – UTEP softball’s Pamala Baber, Courtney Clayton, Mariah Ellis, Kaitlin Fifield, Allie Johnson, Kaitlin Ryder and Ruby Sanchez put in work in the classroom to earn National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) All-America Scholar-Athlete honors for the 2016-17 academic year on Tuesday.

For Clayton and Ryder, it’s their third NFCA honor, while Baber, Ellis, Fifield, Johnson and Sanchez are first-time honorees.

The Miners are part of an announced record of 7,351 softball players across seven membership divisions to earn the prestigious achievement.

NCAA Division I led the way with 1,843 student-athletes earning a 3.5 grade-point average or higher.

UTEP Softball Adds Transfer Mariah Ellis

UTEP softball head coach Tobin Echo-Hawk announced the addition of transfer Mariah Ellis on Tuesday. Ellis played her freshman year at Longwood University (located in Farmville, Va.) during the 2016 season.

Ellis will have three years of eligibility and will play in the outfield.

“We are excited about the addition of Mariah to our roster,” Echo-Hawk said. “She is going to add more depth to our outfield and power at the plate.”

A native of Los Angeles, Calif., Ellis played in 26 contests while starting 10 for the Lancers, including a start as the designated player in the NCAA Tournament against Princeton. Overall on the season, Ellis hit .267 (12-of-45) with a pair of home runs, nine RBI, five runs scored, a triple and a double. She added four walks, a sac-fly and was 2-for-2 on stolen bases.

Ellis connected on a two-run home run during a 6-1 victory against Campbell on March 18. She hit a solo shot on a 2-for-2 performance the next day in a 10-4 win versus Campbell. In a 7-0 win against Presbyterian on April 23, Ellis gathered a career-high three RBI with a double on a 2-for-4 day, as she connected on a two-run single and a one-run double.

During her junior year at Kennedy High School, Ellis set the single-season home run record by blasting 15 jacks. During her senior season at Chatsworth High School, Ellis hit .375 with 20 runs, 28 RBI, seven doubles, a pair of triples, seven stolen bags and five home runs.

Ellis will be part of eight newcomers for the 2017 campaign. She will join recent NLI signees Pamala Baber, Macey Brown, Mallorie Cross, Allie Johnson and Bryanna Molina, along with walk-ons Sarah Rocha and Ruby Sanchez.

As of June 28, 23 student-athletes will grace the 2017 roster, an increase of four players from the 2016 roster.
