She earned AstroTurf SAC Pitcher of the Week honors a League-best six times this season and was named the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) National Pitcher of the Week on Feb. 24. The 2016 South Atlantic Conference Softball Championship MVP claimed second-team All-American honors by the NFCA and was the 2016 College Sports Information Directors of America Softball Academic All-American® of the Year.
Torres, from North Brunswich, N.J., closed out the 2016 season as the consensus National Pitcher of the Year. He finished the year ranked No. 1 in Division II with 162 total strikeouts and surrendered just 4.73 hits per nine innings to lead the nation.

Torres was tabbed the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) Southeast Region Pitcher of the Week four times this season. He also picked up NCBWA National Pitcher of the Week honors on April 8 as he struck out 15 Wingate hitters in a one-hit shutout win. Torres is currently No. 1 all-time in strike outs at Tusculum with 272 in his career, while his 162 strikeouts this season is currently No. 2 on the South Atlantic Conference single season list.
