Pima Community College sophomore infielder Camila Zepeda, a Tucson High graduate, capped off her highly productive 2023-24 season with her selection as a second-team NJCAA All-American.

This is the second straight year a Pima softball player was named an NJCAA All-American.

Elise Munoz of Salpointe earned second-team honors last season. Before Munoz, the last softball player to be named an All-American was Courtney Brown of Flowing Wells in 2016.

Zepeda, who is being recruited by four-year schools but has not made a decision, was named the ACCAC Player of the Year, first team All-ACCAC and to the All-Region I, Division I team. She was softball’s first ACCAC Player of the Year since Jordan Trujillo in 2010.

Zepeda had a 31-game hitting streak during the season and finished with a .473 batting average. She led the Aztecs in at-bats (186), runs (67), doubles (21), home runs (17), RBIs (62), total bases (162) and stolen bases (14).

She had an on-base percentage of .500 and a slugging percentage of .871. She also had 61 put-outs and a fielding percentage of .941.

The Aztecs finished the season at 43-14 overall; the most wins in a single season since 2015. They made their first appearance at the NJCAA Division I Tournament and captured their first Region I, Division I Championship since 2013. They set the second longest winning streak in program history at 26 games. The Aztecs went 79-38 in two seasons with Zepeda on the roster.
