Two Gorillas Earn All-MIAA Softball Honors



KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Pittsburg State University sophomore catcher Kala Holder and junior utility player Kristen Van Hoosen earned All-MIAA honors Wednesday (Apr. 25). Holder was named to the first-team All-MIAA squad, while Van Hoosen received honorable mention All-MIAA recognition.
