BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (January 25, 2023) - The Southeastern Conference leads all athletic conferences with 18 student-athletes named to the Top 50 Watch List for the 2023 USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year.

The USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year award, which is entering its 21st 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 2023 USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year award will be announced on Wednesday, April 19.

The Top 10 Finalists will be revealed on Wednesday, May 3 and the Top 3 on Wednesday, May 17. The 2023 USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year will be announced prior to the NCAA Women's College World Series.
