The first baseman's list of honors includes First Team All-RMAC, Freshman of the Year, National Player of the Week and just earlier this year, was named to the Schutt Sports National Player "Watch List." Ann Marie has relished every moment in her achievements but one characteristic that won't go away is her modesty.

"It was awesome, I enjoyed it a lot. I just like working for the team and being part of such a great program." Says Ann Marie Torres

The accounting major's batting average was almost 400 last season, and with another year to go, one valuable lesson she's learned

"I love being a maverick, I'm so glad that I chose this school. I love coach Kozel as a coach, it has been an easy transition," says Ann Marie.
