Goodwell, Okla.—The Heartland Conference released its 2015 All-Conference Softball team Wednesday afternoon with junior Ashley Jarzombek representing Oklahoma Panhandle State University.

The short-stop from Las Vegas, Nev. was named to the All-Heartland Conference Softball, Second Team as an infielder. At shortstop Jarzombek held a .926 fielding percentage totaling 79 putouts and 71 assists on the season. She also served as the lead-off hitter for the Aggies this year and led the team in hitting with an overall batting average of .367. She helped push the Aggies across the plate with a total of 22 RBI and had six doubles, one triple and four homeruns for the year.

Jarzombek started in each of the 48 games she played in this year and was a reliable hitter ranking seventh in the Heartland Conference in on-base percentage with an average of .464. She was also recognized as the OPSU Student Athlete of the Week twice this year.

The coaching staff was extremely pleased with Jarzombek’s recognition by the conference with Head Coach Meghan Mulcahy stating, “We are very excited to have Ashley named to this year’s All-Conference team. She did an outstanding job for us at shortstop this year and helped set the pace for our team as the lead-off hitter. This nomination is well-deserved and we are looking forward to her contributions to the team next year.”

Assistant Coach Luisa Bar added, “I’m so proud to see that her hard work paid off. She finished with the best batting average on the team and really led the team to its success on the field. Often, as our lead-off hitter, she gave us the momentum we needed early in the game. At the shortstop position she was a valuable asset all through the season.”

Congratulations to Ashley Jarzombek for her All-Conference honors and on representing OPSU and Aggie Athletics with outstanding accomplishments both on and off the field.
