Penn State Softball’s Tori Dubois Earns All-Big Ten First Team Selection

The Big Ten rolled out its awards and all-conference honors for the 2017 season Wednesday and Penn State left fielder Tori Dubois grabbed a spot on the first team selections after an impressive sophomore season at the plate.

Dubois batted .351 for the season, but really heated up for conference play with the Big Ten’s third-best batting average of .457. She led the team in home runs (6) and on-base percentage (.448), while also bringing in the second-most RBIs on the team (29).

Her shining moment at bat may have been an extra innings walk-off home run against Rutgers to seal the 11-9 win in the series opener.

Out in left field, Dubois became known for a few highlight reel catches.

Dubois was the only selection to the All-Big Ten first, second, or defensive team for the Nittany Lions. Junior second baseman Gianna Arrizurieta is Penn State’s sportsmanship award honoree.
