STILLWATER, Oklahoma — Oklahoma State University second baseman Alysia Hamilton has been named an All-American by ESPN.com.

The Moore, Okla. native becomes OSU's first-ever ESPN All-American in softball after an impressive season where she paced the Cowgirls with a team-leading .403 batting average.

Not to mention, she also led the team in slugging percentage (.591), on-base percentage (.468), hits (75), doubles (17) and total bases (110) while helping the Cowgirls to their first Women's College World Series appearance since 1998.

The senior finished her four-year career at Oklahoma State ranked in the top-five of several statistical categories, including at-bats (third with 692), runs scored (third with 128), runs batted in (third with 156), hits (fourth with 233), and doubles (tied for fourth with 40).

Hamilton has the highest career fielding percentage by a second baseman in school history with a minimum of 300 chances at .970 percent.

Defensively, she played a school-record 230 games in a Cowgirl uniform, all at second base. She missed just one game during her four-year career.

Over her four-year career, the Cowgirls went from barely breaking the .500 mark (26-25 as a freshman in 2008) to a WCWS appearance, OSU's seventh in school history.

Hamilton rounds out her time as a Cowgirl as a three-time All-Big 12 and All-Midwest Region selection is Oklahoma State's first ESPN All-American in softball.
