It’s difficult to imagine any Pima athlete, any sport, with a more productive two seasons than the Flowing Wells High and Baylor University all-star. Monceaux led the Aztecs to the 2004 NJCAA championship, 70-8 overall, with 79 RBI, as the league’s player of the year. She was better in ’05, hitting .501 with 21 homers and 82 RBI and a 26-5 record as a starting pitcher. She was a first-team NJCAA All-American.
