BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The Lady Tigers of Texas Southern University were picked to finish at the top of the Southwestern Athletic Conference’s divisional softball standings in 2019 and placed five players on the preseason all-conference teams.
Following a vote of the conference’s head coaches and sports information directors, Marissa Padron, Julia Bilbao, Tevanae Tate, Tyra Williams, and Ebony Wiltz earned all-conference honors. Padron was named to the All-SWAC First Team as a catcher, while the others earned spots on the All-SWAC Second Team.
