NFCA All-Region Teams
GREENSBORO, N.C. – The National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) has named UNCG softball player Katelyn Bedwell (Surrey, B.C./Elgin Park) to its Mideast All-Region First Team as announced on Thursday.
"KB is a tough hitter to throw to and was our leading run producer this season," said Janelle Breneman. "I am glad she is being recognized for her efforts on the field this season."
Bedwell, a first team All-Conference selection at designated player, becomes just the third Spartan all-time to be named first team All-Region joining Penny Thompson (2002) and Alex Emeterio (2010).
The junior designated player had a solid season tying her career high with 11 home runs and setting a new career-best driving in 52 RBI, which is third most in school history. Bedwell was second on the team with a .366 average on 64 hits, 25 runs scored, eight doubles and a triple. The Surrey, B.C. native had 17 multi-hit games and 12 multi-RBI contests, including trying her career-high with five RBI against Virginia Tech.
The Blue and Gold finished the season with a 38-19 record, falling in the SoCon championship game, 1-0, in 11 innings against Georgia Southern. It marks the most wins in a decade when the Spartans won 38 games in 2003.
