STARKVILLE, Miss. – Incoming University of Oregon freshman Cheridan Hawkins validated her place among the nation’s top prep pitchers with her second straight NFCA High School All-America First-Team honor.

In the spring of 2012, the left-handed pitcher from Anderson, Calif., repeated as the Northern Section and Northern Athletic League MVP. During the season, she posted a 28-5 record and 0.69 ERA in her 203 innings in the circle. She led the state in strikeouts for the second straight year with her 400 K’s (and ranked fourth nationally), and helped her squad to its second straight Division IV title. At the plate, she set a section season record for doubles (20), hit .551 and four home runs, and knocked in 46 RBI.

The Anderson High School product was one of four pitchers tabbed to the national first team and one of 13 repeat honorees among the three squads’ 48 selections.

Hawkins was one of six Duck signees last fall, and the other five follow:

- Koral Costa, UT, RH-RT, 5-5, San Pedro, Calif., San Pedro HS (So Cal Firecrackers Club)
- Janelle Lindvall, C, RH-RT, 5-10, Stevenson Ranch, Calif., West Ranch HS (So Cal Firecrackers)
- Danica Mercado, IF, LH-RT, 5-4, Temecula, Calif., Great Oak HS (So Cal Athletics)
- Karine Shaver, IF, LH-RT, RT, 5-4, Waipahu, Hawai’i, Kamehameha HS (Guava Jam Black)
- Andrinae White, OF, RH-RT, 5-5, Fairfield, Calif., St. Patrick-St. Vincent HS (Sorcerors Gold (Mumma))

In 2012-13, she will join a Duck pitching staff that returns senior and third-team All-American Jessica Moore and sophomore and Canadian Junior National Team member Karissa Hovinga.

Under the direction of third-year head coach Mike White, the Ducks come off one of their greatest seasons ever in 2012 with its 45-18 overall mark and 13-9 Pac-12 record. UO capped the season ranked fifth in both national polls; placed third in the Pac-12 for the second straight season; and scored its second-most wins ever in school history en route to its second-ever Women’s College World Series trip.
