She’s already been named as one of the finalists for the Junior US Women’s National Softball Team, so what else could Briana Perez do to set up her exciting senior season?

Be named to the MaxPreps 2017 Preseason All-American Team, for starters. Perez was the only player in the entire North Coast Section to garner the honor, and was one of 10 California-based players. Perez’ future UCLA teammate Holly Azevedo was also named to the team.

For the fourth time in her four-year career with Alhambra Perez will be named an All-American by MaxPreps, an honor that the UCLA-signee will have earned whole-heartedly.

In her junior season she hit a whopping .613 (her highest total as a Bulldog) all the while driving in 40+ RBIs for the second straight season, and stealing 20+ bases for the third year.

Perez, a two-time league MVP, and her teammates will take a shot for their third North Coast Section title this season, after having claimed the Division II title in each of their first three seasons at Alhambra.
