Arizona State freshman outfielder Kaitlin Cochran has been named to the 2006 Louisville Slugger/NFCA NCAA Division I All-American softball first team.

Cochran was also named the Pac-10 Newcomer of the Year and was listed on the All-Pac-10 first team.

Cochran is hitting .440 with 17 home runs, 61 RBIs, 12 stolen bases and a slugging percentage of .804. She also set ASU single-season records this year for home runs and RBIs.


Phoenix Central's Sam Pavlisick hit a two-out home run in the bottom of the ninth inning Friday night to lift the 5A North All-Stars to a 6-5 victory over the South at Grand Canyon University.

Pavlisick had two hits in three at-bats off the North bench and was named the game's most valuable player. The North scored all six of its runs in the final three innings to overcome 2-0 and 5-3 deficits.

Hamilton's Jason Kudlock, who gave up the game-winning homer, had two hits for the South as did Tucson High catcher Matt Macias. Highland's Derek Geisinger homered in the fourth inning for the South.

Six North pitchers combined to strike out 19 batters with Peoria Sunrise Mountain's Trey Burkes recording two strikeouts and the win in one inning of work.

Arizona State sophomore infielder Eric Sogard has been named a third-team All-American by Collegiate Baseball.

Sogard is hitting .366 with nine home runs and 49 RBIs.


Fox Sports Net announced that two Arizona State games will be televised nationally this fall. They are a home game against UCLA at 8:15 p.m. Nov. 18 and the Sun Devils' away game at Arizona at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 25.

ASU has placed four student-athletes on the 2006 Blue Ribbon Preseason All-Pac-10 Conference team. Seniors Andrew Carnahan (offensive line), Sam Keller (quarterback), Terry Richardson (kick returner) and junior Zach Miller (tight end) were all selected to the team.


Arizona State coach Charli Turner Thorne announced that Sybil Dosty and Lauren Lacey have transferred to the program. Both will have to sit out a year and will not be eligible to play for the Sun Devils until the 2007-08 season.

Dosty, a 6-foot-3 center, transferred to ASU from Tennessee where she played in 62 games during her freshman and sophomore years. This past season, Dosty led the Vols in field-goal percentage (.615), averaging 2.9 points and 2.9 rebounds while playing 10.3 minutes per game.

She is a Tucson Salpointe High graduate.

Lacey, a 6-3 forward/center, is transferring from Minnesota. In 2005-06, Lacey played in 28 games and averaged 5.1 points and 2.0 rebounds.


The Phoenix Coyotes signed right wing Enver Lisin and defenseman Logan Stephenson to entry-level contracts. As per club policy, terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

The 20-year-old Lisin played in 43 games this past season with Ak Bars Kazan in Russia and collected seven goals and five assists.

The 6-foot-3, 190-pound Stephenson registered 10 goals and 43 assists in 71 games with Tri-City of the Western Hockey League last season.
