BERKELEY -

With the conference season in the books and postseason underway, the Pac-12 recognized seven Golden Bear softball players with conference honors, the league office announced Wednesday.

Senior ace Jolene Henderson led the way on the All-Pac-12 First Team ballot. She adds her First Team honor to two other conference First Team awards (2011, 2012), as well as a pair of Pitcher of the Year titles (2011, 2012)  and a Second Team  and All-Freshman honor (2010).

Sophomore shortstop Cheyenne Cordes and senior catcher Lindsey Ziegenhirt garnered Second Team nods. This is Cordes’ second honor as she was named All-Freshman in 2011, while Ziegenhirt adds the laurel to her 2010 Honorable Mention and All-Freshman titles.

Junior utility player Victoria Jones and sophomore third baseman Danielle Henderson were recognized as Honorable Mentions. Henderson was also an Honorable Mention as well as All-Freshman in 2010. This is Jones’ first honor.

Outfielder  Khala Taylor earned her way onto the All-Freshman Team and fellow outfielder classmate Vanessa Alvarez was named an All-Freshman Honorable Mention.

Cal has 182 conference honorees since the inaugural Pac-10 season in 1987.

Oregon’s Mike White was named Coach of the Year, along with Jessica Moore’s Pitcher of the Year and Alexa Peterson’s Batting Champion titles. Arizona State’s Amber Freeman is the Player of the Year, and Stanford’s Kayla Bonstrom is Freshman of the Year. Washington Husky Shawna Wright is the Defensive Player of the Year.
