BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (January 26, 2022) - Eighteen student-athletes from the Southeastern Conference are among those on the Top 50 Watch List for the 2022 USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year.

The USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year award, which is entering its 20th season, recognizes outstanding athletic achievement by Division I female collegiate softball players across the nation. Previous recipients of the USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year award from SEC member institutions are Monica Abbott (Tennessee, 2007), Lauren Haeger (Florida, 2015) and Kelly Barnhill (Florida, 2017).

The Top 25 Finalists for the 2022 USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year award will be announced on Wednesday, April 20. While an athlete does not have to be on the "Watch List" to be considered for the Top 25, the eventual USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year will come from the Top 25 Finalists. The Top 10 Finalists will be revealed on Wednesday, May 4 and the Top 3 on Wednesday, May 18. The 2022 USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year will be announced prior to the NCAA Women's College World Series.
