As a sophomore, Van Auken was named to the St. Petersburg Times all-Pinellas first team and all-Suncoast second team. Last season, Van Auken missed half of the season with a separated left shoulder but still was selected to the PCAC South County first team.
Van Auken is a three sport -- volleyball, softball and golf -- letter winner at Osceola.
