BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Auburn softball players Kaylee Carlson and Taylon Snow were named 2018 All-SEC, the league office announced Tuesday.

Carlson was tabbed to both the All-SEC Second Team and All-Defensive Team while Snow was named to the SEC All-Freshman Team.

“I’m proud to see that Kaylee and Taylon have been awarded for all the hard work they’ve put in,” head coach Mickey Dean said. “They are both very deserving.”

Carlson, a senior from Garden Grove, Calif. has been a force in the circle for the Tigers all season, posting a 20-6 record and a 1.20 ERA, third-lowest in program history. This is the second-straight season the right-hander has been tabbed All-SEC. She was named to the First Team and All-Defensive Team last season.

Snow, a native of Chino Hills, Calif., ranks second on the team in batting average with a .338 clip. The freshman has started 43 games at shortstop and has tallied six doubles and a team-best three triples.

Carlson and Snow will look to lead the Tigers to a victory against Alabama in the opening round of the SEC Tournament on Wednesday. Game time is set for 6:30 p.m. CT from Columbia, Mo.
