The awards honor softball student-athletes from the Association's 10 regions with first-, second- and third-team selections. The rookie is one of 12 First Team members and represents the third base position. She was named to the All-WCC Second Team, being named WCC Player of the Week once.

The Sun Belt Conference Player of the Year and USA Softball Player of the Year Top 10 finalist produced 28 home runs and 78 RBI prior to NCAA postseason play and has committed only six errors at shortstop over 142 total chances (56 PO, 80 A, 6 E, .958 FLD%). All honorees now become eligible for selection to the 2017 NFCA Division I All-American teams.

The awards honor softball student-athletes from the Association's 10 regions with first, second and third teams selected for each region.

After a successful regular season, McKenna Bull, Libby Sugg and Caitlyn Larsen Alldredge were named to the 2017 NFCA Division I All-Pacific Region First Team with Rylee Jensen making the third team, as announced by the NFCA on Thursday. Her.460 career average ranks as the ninth-best batting average in NCAA history.

This is the first all-region selection for Manuel, who played a key part both on the field and at the plate for the Panthers this year. With the selections of senior RHP Megan Betsa, junior utility player Tera Blanco, sophomore second baseman Faith Canfield, senior centerfielder Kelly Christner and senior shortstop Abby Ramirez, the Wolverines made up almost half of the first team.

Clifton made the All-Region First Team for the second time in as many seasons. She's also tied for the team lead with three triples and is hitting.315 with 50 RBI. The Fairfax, Virginia, native led Rutgers and finished seventh in the Big Ten with a.691 slugging percentage, including 12 home runs. She owns career bests in all pitching categories, including an 18-3 record and 1.86 ERA, and leads MI with 43 RBI. Her other notable performances against top-75 RPI teams include a 3-for-4, three-RBI showing against James Madison and a three-RBI, three-run game that led the Hokies to a 13-4 run-rule victory over North Carolina on March 19. The Ragin' Cajuns face in-state foe McNeese (42-16) in the opening round at 3 p.m. on Friday live on ESPN3.
