Softball America tabbed Ole Miss outfielder Kylan Becker, along with four members of the coaching staff, to All-America teams on Wednesday. This is the team’s first-ever nomination by Softball America. 

Becker is among a group of four elite outfielders to be selected First Team All-American. She joins Florida’s Amanda Lorenz, UCLA’s Bubba Nickles and Arizona’s Alyssa Palomino-Cardoza. The Rebel center fielder leads the group with a .428 batting average.

Becker isn’t the only Rebel to appear on the First Team. Ole Miss assistant coach Ashley Chastain garnered the pitching coach slot after building a relatively inexperienced group of pitchers into one of the top staffs in the SEC.

Having taken a team picked to finish 12th in the conference to the program’s highest-ever SEC finish and just the second NCAA Super Regional in school-history, the entire Ole Miss coaching staff received All-American laurels. Landing on the Third Team were head coach Mike Smith, associate head coach Ruben Felix and volunteer assistant coach Caty Reeves.
