PHILADELPHIA - University of Pennsylvania softball junior Annie Kinsey was named to the 2007 Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division I Softball All-Star Team. The announcement was made July 25 by the ECAC office in Centerville, Mass.

It just added to a long list of awards for Kinsey, who earlier this summer became the first player in Penn softball history to be named to the Easton All-America team. She was also named to the 2007 Louisville Slugger/NFCA Mid-Atlantic All-Region team, and was a unanimous pick for Ivy League Player of the Year. Kinsey also earned several academic honors, as she was named Academic All-Ivy and selected to the Philadelphia Inquirer/CoSIDA Academic All-Area Softball Team.

Kinsey had a breakout season for the Red and Blue in 2007, earning unanimous first-team All-Ivy honors. Kinsey started all 42 games at second base, and finished the season hitting .450, with a .786 slugging percentage and 37 RBI. She broke multiple program records this year, including single-season records for hits (63), runs (53), doubles (15), and home runs (10). Kinsey led the Ivy League in batting average, hits, runs, doubles, on-base percentage, and total bases. She also led the Quakers in slugging percentage and home runs, and was second on the team in RBI.

Kinsey’s performance this year was enough to make a name for her on the national level. In Division I games through May 13, Kinsey was ranked nationally in four offensive categories: runs per game (2nd), doubles per game (6th), batting average (11th) and slugging percentage (16th).

Kinsey led the Quakers to their best season in program history, including their first Ivy League South Division title. Penn went 23-19, earning the most wins in school history, before losing to Harvard in the inaugural Ivy League Championship series.
