STARKVILLE, Miss. - Four Bruins were named National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) All-Americans, as announced on Wednesday. Freshman Stephany LaRosa was named to the First Team, seniors Andrea Harrison and Katie Schroeder earned Second-Team honors and senior Samantha Camuso was Third Team.

UCLA tied with Alabama and Tennessee for the most All-American mentions with four. The four All-American nods are the most for the Bruins since 2008.

LaRosa is the ninth Bruin to be named a First Team All-American as a freshman, the first since GiOnna DiSalvatore in 2008 and just the third in the 2000's (Natasha Watley, 2001).

Harrison received her second straight All-American award after picking up First Team accolades in 2011. Schroeder also earned her second All-American honor (2009 First Team) and Camuso recorded her first award.

LaRosa concluded her first season in Westwood by leading the Bruins with a .436 batting average, 17 home runs, 61 runs batted in, 146 total bases and an .807 slugging percentage. The Pac-12 Freshman of the Year was also named All-Pac-12 and NFCA All-West Region First Team.

Harrison was second on the team in 2012 with 15 home runs and 13 doubles and fourth with 47 runs batted in, hitting .359 with 45 runs scored and a .674 slugging. She was also named All-Pac-12 and NFCA All-West Region First Team.

Schroeder paced the team with 59 runs scored, 14 doubles, a .514 on base and 17 stolen bases, and was second on the squad with a .407 average and 28 walks to go with five homers and 31 RBI. Like Harrison and LaRosa, she was named All-Pac-12 and NFCA All-West Region First Team.

Camuso was second on the team with a .755 slugging percentage, tied for second with 48 RBI, third with a .374 average and fourth with 13 home runs. Camuso was named NFCA All-West Region First Team and All-Pac-12 Second Team.
