Cal State Fullerton junior third baseman Missy Taukeiaho (Etiwanda HS) has earned third-team All-America honors from the National Fastpitch Coaches Association.
She is the school’s first two-time All-American since 2003, while being the 29th Titan to be named to an NFCA All-America Team and the 39th selection overall.
In all 55 players from 28 different institutions were selected to one of three 2015 NFCA Division I All-American teams. The Association is in its second year implementing a change in the NFCA’s Division I awards process as three all-region teams, instead of the traditional two, were selected in each of 10 different regions.
Taukeiaho hit .390 with 10 doubles, 12 home runs and 41 RBIs. Although she missed 10 games, Taukeiaho still managed to lead the team in slugging percentage (.728) and on-base percentage (.488) while recording nearly three times the number of walks (27) to strikeouts (10).
The Rancho Cucamonga native helped guide Cal State Fullerton to a 34-22 overall record and combined with 33 wins in 2014, this marks the first back-to-back 30-win seasons for the Titans since 2006-07.
