Bailey Vrazel added to her collection of awards and accolades in her short TWU softball career after being named the 2011-12 President’s Award winner, becoming just the second student-athlete to receive the award as a sophomore.

The highest honor given to a current TWU student-athlete, the President’s Award recognizes excellence in sports, academics and in the promotion of TWU athletics, with Vrazel becoming the sixth softball player to earn the award.

Vrazel had plenty of success on the field — the first Pioneer to earn All-America honors in her freshman and sophomore years — as well as in the classroom, where she is majoring in kinesiology with a 4.00 grade-point average. She was named the 2012 Lone Star Conference Fred Jacoby Female Academic Athlete of the Year.

Chaynade Knowles, a four-year letter winner in gymnastics, and senior Katelyn Osborne, a four-year letter winner in volleyball, were the other two finalists for the award.
