          BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Softball shortstop Alicia Fine, who has earned all-star honors in each of the last three years at NCAA Division I Portland State University, is transferring to Western Washington University for her last year of eligibility beginning this fall.

“We are really excited to have Alicia joining our program,” said WWU head coach Amy Suiter. “She will bring a wealth of experience to this team and we are excited to have her in her final campaign.”

Fine, a graduate of Mount Vernon High School, received Big Sky Conference all-star honorable mention as a junior at PSU last spring, starting all 44 games and batting .303. She also had a .945 fielding average, committing just 11 errors in 201 chances.

As a sophomore, Fine was a second-team BSC all-star. She started all 56 games that season, hitting .241 and having a .927 fielding average.

Fine was the Pacific Coast Softball Conference Mountain Division Freshman of the Year and a first-team all-conference pick as a true freshman. That year she batted .336, driving in 31 runs and scoring 18 on a team that reached the national playoffs. Fine had 18 extra-base hits that spring with 11 doubles, two triples and five home runs, and committed just four errors in 150 chances.

That season Fine tied a school record for hits in a game with five, going 5-for-5 with two doubles, two runs scored, five RBI and a walk-off grand slam home run in the bottom of the ninth inning at Northern Colorado on Apr. 15, 2012.

Fine was a four-time Skagit Valley Herald all-Area and Northwest Conference all-star at Mount Vernon High School.
