OKLAHOMA CITY - San Diego State sophomore Hayley Miles (Antelope, Calif.) has been named to the 2012 Easton NCAA Division I All-America Second Team, Easton Sports, Inc. announced today. Athletes selected to the Easton All-American teams are those who have had an outstanding season, have been stalwarts for their team and who are represented by the Easton brand in some aspect.
Miles, who last month was named a third-team NFCA All-American, is the fourth Easton All-American in program history, joining Bailey Micetich (third team in 2011), Christina Ross (second team in 2008) and Erin Floros (first team in 2006). Miles (third team in 2012), Samantha Beasley (third team in 2010) and Floros (third team in 2006) have each been NFCA All-Americans in the past.
Miles, who also earned NFCA all-West Region second-team accolades, Mountain West Co-Player of the Year honors and Capital One/CoSIDA Academic All-District accolades this year, batted .429 with 62 runs, 20 doubles, 20 home runs, 49 RBIs and 34 walks from the leadoff spot to lead the Aztecs (32-24, 9-3 Mountain West) to their school-record fifth consecutive trip to the NCAA tournament and fifth MW title.
Miles shattered 11 single-season records along the way, including batting average (.429, previous best was .389), on-base percentage (.519, previous best was .467), slugging percentage (.909, previous best was .633), OPS percentage (1.428, previous best was 1.053), runs (62, previous best was 41), extra-base hits (42, previous best was 25), doubles (20, previous best was 14), home runs (20, previous best was 15), RBIs (49, previous best was 48), total bases (159, previous best was 102) and walks (34, previous best was 28).
A three-time MW Player of the Week in 2012, Miles also owned season-best marks in multi-hit games (20), multi-RBI games (13), multi-run games (18, rest of the team had 21 combined), go-ahead RBIs (12), go-ahead runs (20), game-winning RBIs (9), game-winning runs (7). Her season also saw a pair of double-digit game hitting streaks (12 and 11) and a 33-game streak of reaching base safely.

Miles and SDSU went 2-2 in the NCAA Los Angeles Regional before being eliminated in the regional championship game for the second straight year, falling just short of the NCAA Super Regionals (equivalent to the Sweet 16). San Diego State finished with single-season program records in slugging percentage (.466), doubles (79), home runs (58), RBIs (237) and total bases (692).
