Sugg's award marks back-to-back third-team All-America nods for the Cougars after pitcher McKenna Bull last year. Delaney Willard was a first-team selection in 2012, while Gordy Bravo was on the Easton All-American First Team in 2013.

During the regular season, she led the team in several categories, including batting average (.423), RBIs (64), hits (63), doubles (13) and home runs (11). Sugg was one of 54 student-athletes from 35 different institutions to be selected.
