A total of 54 players from 32 different institutions have earned the honor of being named to one of three 2013 Division I All-American teams the Association announced on May 29.
Wolny, a senior first baseman from El Dorado Hills, Calif., led the Cardinals offensively with a .423 batting average, belted out 11 home runs, scored 42 runs and set a new school record with 55 RBIs on the season. She is a two-time All-Great Lakes Region first team and four-time All-BIG EAST Conference selection. The four-year starter finished her career ranked in the top five in all-time hits, doubles, home runs, RBI and walks, games played and started.
