#19 Maria Torres
1999-2002 | 1B/3B | 5-9 | R/R | Parana, Argentina

Torres was a member of the Argentinian National Team from 1994-97 and is the only person to wear No. 19 for four years to date. After an injury sidelined her in a 1998 redshirt year, she saw limited action in 1999 before breaking into the starting lineup in 2000. As a sophomore, she hit .272 with six homers, five doubles, 25 RBIs and nine runs. She saw her most action as a senior in 2002, starting 57 of 59 contests and batting .269 with one homer, nine doubles and 20 RBIs.

- Was the first-ever international player on the Tennessee softball team
- Biggest thrill was being the youngest player on her squad at the Pan American Games in 1995

#19 Lexi Overstreet
2013-pres. | C | L/R | Suwanee, Ga.

Overstreet hit .268 as a freshman in 2013 in limited action and has made major strides for what should be an exciting 2014 season. She thrived in late-season at-bats, showing power in SEC play. Overstreet hit her first career homer in the top of the fourth against No. 11 Missouri on May 4. In the 2013 WCWS against Texas, she drew a bases-loaded walk with two outs in the sixth inning to drive in the game-winning run.
