UTEP Softball’s Duffield Named to the CoSIDA Academic All-District Team

UTEP softball player Kacey Duffield was announced to the 2018 Google Cloud Academic All-District Softball Team, selected by CoSIDA.

The junior infielder was named to the District 7 team, as the Fairbanks, Alaska, native posted a 4.00 GPA in Multidisciplinary Studies.

Duffield made a big splash in her first season at UTEP after transferring from Indian Hills Community College. Besides excelling on the field, Duffield was also honored as a Conference USA Academic Medalist, along with earning a spot on the Commissioner’s Honor Roll.

She hit .290 with five home runs and 22 RBI in 46 starts (51 games played). She added 17 runs and 10 doubles. Duffield also led the Miners with 230 putouts and started the final 36 games at first base.

Duffield hit a walk-off, three-run home run that defeated UTSA, 5-4, while she was also named the C-USA Hitter of the Week on April 16 after posting a .600 average with a 1.400 slugging percentage, seven RBI, two doubles, two home runs, four runs scored, a walk and stolen base during a series sweep of North Texas.

Duffield is the first Miner since Courtney Clayton (2016) to be named CoSIDA Academic All-District.
