An honor-filled senior season continued for Ashland University center fielder Ally Farrah on Wednesday (May 24) afternoon, as she was named first-team College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-America.
Starting all 53 games in 2017, Farrah hit .402 with 37 runs scored, five doubles, 18 RBIs, a .439 on-base percentage and a school-record 31 stolen bases. She is second in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference in steals, sixth in hits, seventh in batting average and tied for seventh in runs scored.
Farrah graduated with a 3.85 cumulative grade-point average in Athletic Training.
Earlier this offseason, Farrah earned second-team All-Midwest Region honors from both the Division II Conference Commissioner Association (D2CCA) and the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA), CoSIDA Academic All-District and first-team All-GLIAC.
Farrah is Ashland softball's first CoSIDA Academic All-American since outfielder Taylor Menhart earned third-team honors in 2015, and is the program's first first-team Academic All-American since catcher Alicia Longstreth in 2001.
