A clutch hitter all season, she batted .367 with runners on base, .367 with runners in scoring position, and a team-best 17 of her RBIs came with two outs in an inning. Navarro upped her home run total every year, and finished with 15 career round trippers, the fourth best mark in school history.
A criminal justice major, she graduated from Sacramento State in December of 2012.
