NFCA announces 2022 Division I All-America teams

 LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Fifty-four student-athletes from 34 different institutions have been voted to one of three 2022 NFCA Division I All-America teams, the Association announced on Wednesday afternoon during its annual press conference at the Women’s College World Series (WCWS).

Oklahoma, the No. 1 overall seed at the WCWS, and Arkansas, the SEC regular season and tournament champions, led the way with five honors each. All five Sooners were named to the first team and four Razorbacks captured first-team nods.

UCLA took home three All-America accolades with 10 more programs earning two All-America nods. Both of Northwestern’s recipients were on the first team, while Arizona State, Clemson, Mississippi State, Oklahoma State, USF, Virginia Tech and Washington each received one first-team plaudit.

Unanimous first-team selection at Designated Player or Utility/Non-Pitcher Jocelyn Alo is one of three student-athletes who earned the honored distinction of being a four-time NFCA All-American. It marks the third first-team selection for the two-time USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year and NCAA all-time home run leader.

Joining Alo in the four-time All-America club are second-team honorees Janae Jefferson of Texas (second base) and Washington’s Gabbie Plain (at-large pitcher). The trio brings the list to 40.

Alo, Mississippi State catcher Mia Davidson, OU second baseman Tiare Jennings and Washington shortstop Baylee Klingler were unanimous first-team selections.

Along with Alo, Jefferson and Plain, there are 22 returning All-Americans across the three teams, including three-time honorees USF pitcher Georgina Corrick (first team), third baseman Sydney Sherrill (second team) of Florida State, Alabama pitcher Montana Fouts (second team at-large) and Miranda Elish, utility/pitcher from Oklahoma State (second team). Fifteen more student-athletes took home their second All-America accolade.

Along with her second All-America nod, Davidson was named the 2022 Diamond Sports/NFCA Catcher of the Year which is bestowed on the NFCA’s first-team catcher. Davidson played a pivotal role in helping the Bulldogs reach and host their first-ever Super Regional. An All-SEC first teamer, Davidson hit a team-leading .371 and ranks top-15 nationally with 22 home runs, .549 on-base percentage, .855 slugging percentage and 136 total bases.

USF outfielder Alexis Johns earned the 2022 New Balance/NFCA Golden Shoe Award as Division I’s top base stealer. Johns leads the NCAA with 59 steals in 61 attempts, averaging just a tick under one steal per game. She has swiped multiple bases 17 times, including four three-steal contests.
