SANTA FE’S successful softball program can proudly say the Indians have an All-American lady.
Former Santa Fe star Aubrey Hockenberry was recently named to the NAIA softball All-American first team as the University of Houston-Victoria utility player ranked in among the nation’s top 25 players in seven different categories after helping lead her team to a 33-19 record and a second-place finish in the Red River Athletic Conference. Hockenberry became the tenth Jaguars player to be named to the All-American team since 2009 and the first since 2014.
The UH-Victoria slugger hit .396 with a school record-tying 15 homers, 56 runs batted in to go along with a .461 on base percentage and a .779 slugging percentage. Hockenberry finished tenth in the nation in homers, 11th in home runs per game, 18th in slugging percentage, 21st in total runs batted in, 24th in total bases and 25th in both RBI per game and total bases per game.
