The 2010s were very memorable for the UCF Knights softball program as they made six trips to the NCAA Tournament (2010, 2012, 2014-2016) with three straight regional final appearances (‘14-’16), two American Athletic Conference regular season championships (2014 and 2015), an American Athletic Conference Tournament championship in 2015.

The decade also produced two Pitcher of the Year Award winners (Mackenzie Audas in C-USA in 2012, and Shelby Turnier in the AAC in 2015) as well as two Player of the Year Award winners - Farrah Sullivan (2014) and Jessica Ujvari (2015).

The decade also produced the program’s first All-Americans in 2015, with Shelby Turnier being named First Team NFCA All-American (winning the NCAA ERA title at 0.87 going 25-8 on the season) and Mackenzie Audas making the Capital One All-American First Team in 2015, finishing 2nd in the NCAA in ERA (0.95, just behind Turnier) and going 24-1 on season while putting up a 3.93 GPA.

The decade produced so many talented players that we made first and second teams for the decade. Players had to have played at least one season from 2010-2019.

Here they are:
