Cal’s Sagl, Wideman honored

California University softball players Natalie Wideman and Alex Sagl were both named National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) All-Americans on Wednesday night.

Wideman, a senior catcher, became the first player to garner NFCA First-Team All-America status in a decade and Sagl. a sophomore pitcher, received NFCA Third-Team All-America laurels.

A four-year starter, Wideman set career highs in virtually every offensive category and led the PSAC with a .454 batting average (59-for-130), 49 runs scored and a .535 on-base percentage. She also finished fourth in the league with 22 stolen bases, which is tied for the second-most in single-season school history, after entering the year with eight steals in her career.

Sagl tied for first in the PSAC with 25 victories, becoming the first California pitcher with back-to-back 20-win seasons in over a decade. She also ranked second in the league with 190 strikeouts and finished third with a 1.49 ERA, establishing career highs in both categories.
