University of Arkansas seniors Danielle Gibson, KB Sides and Linnie Malkin, as well as sophomore Hannah Gammill, earned first-team All-America honors from the National Fastpitch Coaches Association on Wednesday. Junior Chenise Delce captured second-team honors.
Arkansas and top-ranked Oklahoma led the way with five honorees each. The Razorbacks’ four first-team awards are the most by an SEC program since Tennessee had five in 2006.
Before this season, only five Razorbacks players had earned All-America honors from the NFCA. Braxton Burnside and Mary Haff were first-team selections last season, while Gibson was a second-team choice. Autumn Storms was a second-team selection in 2019 and Miranda Dixon was a third-team selection in 2010. Nine of the program’s 10 All-America awards have come under Coach Courtney Deifel.
