Sandercock, Sherrill named All-Americans

Florida State softball pitcher Kathryn Sandercock and third baseman Sydney Sherrill were named NFCA Second Team All-Americans as announced by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association on Wednesday. The Seminoles have now had 54 All-American honors in program history.

Sandercock (30-3) had a 1.44 ERA and appeared in 44 games with 25 starts, leading the Seminoles in ERA, wins, innings pitched (194.1), strikeouts (159), complete games (8), and batting average against (.189). Her ERA ranks 17th in the country and her 30 wins are the second most among pitchers in 2022. She is 79-8 in her career with a 1.56 career ERA.

This is Sandercock’s second All-American honor as she was named to the second team last season. She was also named to the All-ACC First team this season and was named to the NFCA Southeast Region First Team.

Sherrill was named the ACC’s Defensive Player of the Year for the third straight season, solidifying her as one of the best defenders in ACC history. This marks her third All-American honor. She was named to the first team in 2019 and the third team in 2018.

She was a brick wall at third base, earning a .975 fielding percentage and a perfect fielding percentage in ACC play. She added a .321 batting average to her defensive performance as she recorded a team-high 16 doubles to go with 41 RBI and nine home runs.

Sherrill was a part of a Seminole defense that finished second in the country in fielding percentage (.982) while turning 25 double plays. She has been named to the All-ACC first team in all four years that the honor was given during her time at FSU. Sherrill is FSU’s and the ACC’s all-time doubles leader with 82 in her career. She also ranks second at FSU in career walks (186) and runs scored (225) and third in home runs (43) and RBI (209). Sherrill also leaves Florida State second all-time in assists with 555.

Also on Wednesday, Sherrill was named one of college softball’s nine inaugural Rawlings Gold Glove Award winners, presented by the NFCA.
