The accolades keep rolling in for Jessica Mendoza of Stanford.

Mendoza, a sophomore outfielder and graduate of Camarillo High, made the National Fastpitch Coaches Assn. All-American team for the second time Wednesday night at a banquet in Oklahoma City.

She also had single-season school records of 94 hits, 20 doubles, 13 home runs, 57 runs and 20 stolen bases.

Other players receiving All-American honors include Jennifer Sharron of Notre Dame, Nicole Giordano of Arizona and Amy Berman of Southern Mississippi.

Sharron, a junior left-hander from Thousand Oaks, and Giordano, a junior outfielder from Saugus, were named to the second team.

Berman, a senior shortstop from Newbury Park, made the third team.
