BERKELEY -

A trio of California softball players earned Pac-12 All-Academic merits following strong performances in the classroom in the 2012-13 academic year, conference commissioner Larry Scott announced Friday. Senior Lindsey Ziegenhirt picked up her third All-Academic First Team honor, while sophomores Nikki Owens and Danielle Henderson were named Honorable Mentions in their first year of eligibility.

To be eligible for selection to the academic team, a student-athlete must be of sophomore standing or higher with a minimum 3.0 overall grade point average and be a significant contributor.

Ziegenhirt, who concluded her Cal career with a 3.77 GPA in her coursework as a psychology major, adds the award to a slew of other academic awards including Capital One/CoSIDA Third Team Academic All-American, Pac-12 Scholar Athlete of the Year and Capital One/CoSIDA All-District 8 First Team honors. For her efforts on the diamond, Ziegenhirt was recognized as an NFCA All-Pacific Region First Team and All-Pac-12 Second Team Selection.

Henderson, a sociology major, adds her award to an NFCA All-Pacific Region First Team and All-Pac-12 Honorable Mention honor this season. Owens made her debut in the circle for the Blue and Gold this season while balancing her athletics with her cognitive sciences studies.
