Cal softball puts five on All-Pac-10 teams

Thursday May 16, 2002


Five Cal softball players were named to the All-Pac-10 squad for the 2002 season. On the first team, senior pitcher Jocelyn Forest was the lone selection, while four players - freshman Kaleo Eldredge, senior Candace Harper, junior Veronica Nelson and junior Courtney Scott - made the second team.  

The Golden Bears had the second-most players named to the first or second team, as 2002 Pac-10 champion UCLA tallied six first and second team all-conference honors.  

Forest (21-12) became just the second pitcher in Cal history to win 20 or more games in each of her four years. She is second in almost all Cal pitching categories to four-time All-American Michele Granger, including strikeouts, wins, games and innings pitched.  

Eldredge and Washington’s Kristen Rivera are the only first-year athletes to be named to the all-conference squad. Eldredge leads the Bears in hits with 72 and stolen bases, totaling nine.  

The five selections are the most first or second team picks for Cal since 1993, when six Bears were selected to the all-conference squad.
