Wednesday, June 03, 2009

FORT MYERS, Fla. – FGCU’s Cheyenne Jenks continues to rack up awards as she picked up her second All-American honor when she was named a first team Easton All-American on Tuesday. Jenks is one of 15 student-athletes from across the country to be named to the first team and the only representative from the Atlantic Sun Conference.

While Jenks is the third All-American in FGCU softball history (Ashley Cecil Spencer; 2005, Carmen Paez; 2007), she is FGCU’s first Easton All-American and first Division I All-American.

Jenks was named a third team All-American by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) just last week. She was also named the A-Sun Player of the Year along with receiving NFCA South Region First Team honors.

A two-sport star, Jenks hit 23 home runs to sit second in NCAA rankings while her .473 average ranked fourth. The senior also knocked in 73 runs to lead the A-Sun and tie her own A-Sun single-season record. Jenks has been a part of three Atlantic Sun Regular Season Champions during FGCU’s two seasons in the A-Sun as she was also a member of the FGCU volleyball squad. The Naples, Fla. native recently earned a roster spot with the Chicago Bandits with the NPL (National Fastpitch League).
