Orgeron, a third team selection a year ago, was named to the first team this year. The senior from New Orleans hit a .351, with 22 homers, and led the nation in RBI’s with 94. Orgeron, the 2012 Sun Belt Conference Player of the Year, and a finalist for the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award, hit six grand slams this year and had nine in her career, both of which tied NCAA records.
