Pitt softball players Carly Thea and Tori Nirschl take home ACC, regional awards

2014 wasn't a great one for the Pitt softball team. In their first ACC season, the Panthers were 15-29 and won only six conference games.

Pitt played some competitive games against the nation's best teams, losing one-run games to top ten teams in Oklahoma and Kentucky. But winning only two three-game series all year, the team struggled for the most part.

Despite the lack of team success, a couple of players had banner years. None had a better season than outfielder Carly Thea, who made the All-ACC Second Team as well as the All NFCA Regional Second Team. She is the first Pitt player to ever be named to the regional squad and Thea batted .388 on the year - good for sixth in the conference.

Outfielder Tori Nirschl also made the All-ACC Third Team.

Not a great year but it's still nice to see a few players have some individual success.
