IRVING, Texas – UTEP softball’s Kaitlin Fifield is among 14 honorees for the Spring Conference USA Spirit of Service Award, as announced on Wednesday. The award is given to the student-athletes who donate their time in the community, have a high academic standing and excel in their respective sports.
Fifield donated much of her time to community service as the El Paso native worked with the Miracle League on multiple occasions, mentoring baseball teams with disabilities. Fifield assisted with instructions to kids at UTEP Softball’s Free Clinic.
Fifield also made time to help with UTEP events, which included Orange Fever Fiesta (fundraising event) and the UTEP-Army football game (hospitality/greeting).
Fifield’s classroom efforts were apparent as she was named to the C-USA Commissioner’s Honor Roll all four years at UTEP.
The former Chapin High School hurler wrapped up her UTEP career ranked tied for third in wins (24) and second in saves (five).
