The Big Ten announced the 2019 All-Big Ten Softball Teams and individual awards Wednesday, with Minnesota, Northwestern and Wisconsin earning individual accolades through a vote of the conference’s 14 head coaches.

Wisconsin junior first baseman Kayla Konwent was selected as the Player of the Year, while Minnesota’s Amber Fiser was unanimously chosen as the Pitcher of the Year. Northwestern received a pair of honors with Danielle Williams named the Freshman of the Year and the Wildcats’ Kate Drohan earning Coach of the Year plaudits.

Konwent is not only the first Wisconsin student to earn the Big Ten Player of the Year award, but also the first Badger ever to receive any individual conference softball award (Player, Pitcher, Freshman or Coach of the Year) since those honors were first presented in 1985.
