LUBBOCK, Texas - Texas Tech softball signee Jessica Marshburn was recently named a second team NJCAA All-American by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) after hitting over .400 and swiping 64 bases this past season at Navarro College.
One of the top base stealers in the country the past two seasons, Marshburn was honored on the second team All-America squad for the second-straight season as she hit .419 to go along with 12 doubles, 22 RBI, 50 runs scored.
Navarro led the country in stolen bases thanks in part to Marshburn, who ranked second nationally in the category. She swiped 89 bases as a freshman to lead the country and earn the Golden Shoe award.
Marshburn, a native of Van, Texas, was also named to the NFCA All-Midwest Region teams following both seasons as well. She earned first-team honors in 2013, a year after being named to the second team as a freshman.
Marshburn is the sixth junior college player to earn All-American honors and sign with Texas Tech under fourth-year head coach Shanon Hays, joining Logan Hall (2009), Kelsey Dennis (2009-10), Cydney Allen (2010), Adriana Perez (2010-11) and Shelby Johnson (2011-12).
