When you have the kind of success that the Angelina College softball team has had this season, which includes record setting totals in wins and homers, you're bound to put a few players on the Region XIV All-Conference team.
According to a press release from the college, the Angelina College Lady Roadrunners placed a total of five players on that list.
Kali Holcomb, Kaylee Parker and Miranda Wiggins earned First-Team All-Conference honors, while Lauren Garza and Taylor Davis earned Second-Team nods.
