The postseason recognition keeps coming for members of the Buena Vista softball team as junior Stephanie Hayden and senior Sam Engleman have been named First and Third Team All-Region selections as announced by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) on Saturday.
The duo joins a strong group of Iowa Conference players selected to the three Midwest Region teams. A total of 18 conference players were honored, including seven on the First Team alone.
Hayden was named First Team All-Iowa Conference earlier in the month with Engleman landing a spot on the Second Team.
Hayden ranked fourth on the year among all of the regional players in batting average at .476 and was second in on-base percentage at .558. She was also sixth in stolen bases.
Engleman was ranked in the top-half of the region sluggers in both home runs and slugging percentage.
A total of 360 players were chosen by the NFCA to compile this year's All-Region Teams which cover eight regions throughout the nation.
