SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The Pacific Coast Softball Conference announced its All-PCSC teams this afternoon, recognizing three Broncos. Junior pitcher Jaime Forman-Lau was a first-team selection, while senior first baseman Tracie Hall and sophomore third baseman Vanessa Werner received second-team recognition.

Forman-Lau, of San Jose's Archbishop Mitty High School, is a seven-time PCSC Pitcher of the Week winner, and led the conference with 112 strikeouts in 94.0 innings pitched through 14 appearances. PCSC opponents hit only .123 against Forman-Lau, as she boasted a 0.89 ERA in conference play. She was named PCSC Pitcher of the Year on Monday.

Hall, from Simi Valley, started all 54 games in which she played, registering 36 hits and a season record six home runs. She drove in 24 runs and posted a .226 batting average. A starter at short stop last season, Hall transitioned successfully to her new position and led the team in putouts with 398.

Vanessa Werner came off a redshirt season to earn second team PCSC honors at third base.

Werner is a native of Albuquerque, N.M., and saw action in 52 games. She recorded 42 hits, including 14 sacrifices, good for the third best mark in SCU records. She posted a .271 batting average, including two key hits against seventh-ranked California. A starter as a freshman two seasons ago, Werner redshirted last season due to injury, and returned in 2003 as a left-handed batter.

Head coach Marcy Crouch was named the league's Coach of the Year earlier this week. She led the Broncos to a second-place finish in the inaugural year of the PCSC. In her fourth year at the helm of the SCU program, Crouch guided the team through a milestone season, posting a record 30 victories, more than any other Bronco squad in the 25-year history of the program, and setting numerous season marks in the process.
