WHITTIER, Calif. – The Division III National Championship West Regional All-Tournament Teams were announced this week for Softball and Whittier College saw four Poets get recognized.

Seniors Kacey Whitney (Cypress, Calif.) and Brittany Attaway (Claremont, Calif.) were joined by junior Naomi Martinez (Marina Del Rey, Calif.) and freshman Brianna MaGee (Torrance, Calif.).

These four helped lift the Purple & Gold to the program's first win in program history during the NCAA Division III National Championships. 

In the win against Claremont-M-S Whitney was 2-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI.  Martinez was a perfect 2-for-2 scoring once and driving in three, MaGee in the leadoff spot finished 1-for-2 with a run scored and a run batted in and Attaway despite going hitless was able to score once and drive in another.

In the doubleheader against Linfield, Whitney stayed redhot going 5-for-8 scoring twice.  Martinez was 3-for-6 with a pair of RBI's.  Attaway finished 2-for-6 scoring three times and driving in two and MaGee finished 4-for-8 scoring twice, driving in another and adding a rare in-the-park homerun in game two.
