Kayla Braud In Top 10 For Award

The Top 10 Finalists represent 10 schools and five different NCAA Division I Conferences. The list is comprised of five seniors, one junior, one sophomore and three freshmen. The final three finalists will be announced May 26 while the winner of the 2010 USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year Award will be announced prior to the start of the World Series action at the ASA Hall of Fame Stadium.
Alabama's Kayla Braud was named the Southeastern Conference Co-Freshman of the Year earlier Wednesday, on top of being named a finalist for the national player of the year.

The freshman from Eugene, Ore., was named to both the first team All-SEC and freshman All-SEC teams. Overall on the season the rookie is batting .494 with two home runs, 28 RBI and has stolen 36 bases.
