Humboldt State Athletics – Evelyn Andrews

Humboldt State’s Micaela Harris has been named to the California Collegiate Athletic Association All-Star Softball Team, which was announced on Tuesday by the conference office. 

Harris’ teammate Evelyn Andrews, who passed away in February, also was recognized after being named honorary captain of the all-star team.

With the season cut short due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the CCAA opted this year to name an all-star team in each sport instead of the annual all-conference honors.

According to HSU, the selections are “a fun effort to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments across the league during the abbreviated 2020 campaign.”

There were 20 players named to the all-star team, including at least one representative from all 11 programs.

Andrews was a redshirt freshman with the Jacks when she tragically passed away, following a courageous battle with cancer.

According to the HSU sports department, Andrews became a source of strength, inspiration and courage to each team across the league.

Harris hit .352 in 23 games before the season was canceled, tying for the team lead with Danica Grier.

The standout junior also drove in 14 runs and scored a team-high 24 times. 

Other Lumberjacks nominated for the all-star team included Grier, Lauren Lipe, Haley Suter and Mariah Tovar.
