2024 Postseason Honors Continue to Roll in for Clemson Softball

While wishing they could have been in Oklahoma City for the Women’s College World Series this weekend, the 2024 Clemson Softball Tigers still have plenty of individual accomplishments to celebrate.

The National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) has doled out its postseason honors, and quite a few Clemson players made their list. First on the regional teams, senior center fielder McKenzie Clark and junior infielder Maddie Moore both made second team All-Southeast for their standout performances in 2024. Senior utility player Valerie Cagle was named to the first team All-Southeast. Three Tigers on these lists marks the most single-season selections that Clemson has received through the program’s short five years of existence. On the All-American level, Moore got the third-team nod for her first ever All-American nomination, while Cagle was named to the first team All-American for her fourth year as an All-American in a row. This is the first time Clemson Softball has had two All-Americans, making Moore only the second All-American in program history.

Clemson was represented extremely well in postseason conference accolades as well. The Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) named a record seven Tigers to their all-conference teams, including first-team nominated Moore and senior infielder Alia Logoleo. The second-team includes a trio of players from Clemson in Clark, junior infielder Alex Brown, and senior pitcher Regan Spencer. Third-team All-ACC nods round out with Cagle and senior pitcher Millie Thompson. Thompson was also named to the College Sports Communicators (CSC) Academic All-District team, alongside co-Tiger and junior pitcher Brooke McCubbin.

Duke nearly swept the yearly awards in-conference, with outfielder Claire Davidson taking ACC Player of the Year and coach Marissa Young being named ACC Coach of the Year. On the national stage, Davidson was a top-10 finalist for National Player of the Year, while it was ultimately either Texas’ Reese Atwood for Softball America or Stanford’s NiJaree Canady for USA Softball who took home the honor in 2024. The winner(s) take the place of last year’s unanimous winner, Clemson’s own Valerie Cagle.
