Stockman, Ceo collect honors on the diamond
By: Todd Mordhorst Journal Sports Editor
Courtney Ceo?s softball season ended in March, but that didn?t stop her from raking in a postseason award this past week. Hailey Stockman?s bat remained on fire all spring as she made history at Chico State. Ceo was named to the National Fastpitch Coaches Association All-Pacific Region second team. The Bear River High graduate suffered a season-ending knee injury and has missed the past two months for Oregon, which will open play in the NCAA Super Regional today against Arizona State. Ceo was on her way to another superb season before the injury. The Ducks starting third baseman batted .378 with 34 runs scored, seven RBIs and one home run. The sophomore also stole 10 bases in 13 attempts. Stockman capped her phenomenal career with the Wildcats earlier this month. After batting .327 with a school-record 11 home runs and 58 RBIs Stockman was named to the Daktronics All-America Team as an honorable mention selection. Stockman was the first Chico State player to earn All-American honors since J.R. Roberts in 1998. In just two years as a Wildcat, Stockman became the all-time leader in home runs (20) and slugging percentage (.650). She is second in career RBIs (96), third in batting average (.353) and fourth in extra-base hits (48).
