Newly minted senior Mandy Ogle was named to the Women’s International All-Star Team at last week’s Canadian Open Fastpitch International Championship. It was the San Antonio native’s second summer in a row playing in the tournament for the California A’s. She was the only member of the A’s chosen for the elite squad.
The All-Star team was chosen after round-robin play of the tournament, with Ogle hitting .444 for that particular part of the event. She contributed to the A’s record 2-3 in pool play, highlighted with an 8-1 win over Japan (who eventually went on to win the tournament). Ogle was 1-for-1 against Japan, and was hit by a pitch, driving in three runs. She also had two hits against Canada and a hit against Team USA.
During Ogle's junior year at Texas, she started 60 of 61 games for the Longhorns as catcher, recorded new career highs in runs batted (41) and home runs (four), and matched her previous personal bests with 43 hits and 22 runs scored. She was named to the National Fastpitch Coaches Association All-Central Region Second Team.
