NFCA Announces All-Region Honors; 17 CAA Players Garner Accolades

Seventeen Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) softball players earned National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) All-Region honors announced by the organization Thursday afternoon.

Five CAA teams were represented among the 17 student-athletes to receive honors. James Madison had six players garner the distinction, Delaware had four players receive recognition, Hofstra had three players honored, and Drexel and UNCW each had a pair of players collect accolades.

The players selected to the Northeastern Region First Team include James Madison catcher Lauren Bernett, James Madison first baseman Hannah Shifflet, James Madison second baseman Jasmine Hall, Delaware third baseman Hanna Garber and Hofstra outfielder Chelsea Manto.

The Northeastern Region Second Team was comprised of Delaware pitchers Emily Winburn and Graceyn Frost, Drexel teammates Kristi DiMeo (1B) and Jackie Masone (SS), and the James Madison duo of Emily Phillips (OF) and Kayla Boseman (DP/UTIL).  

Delaware catcher Halle Kisamore, James Madison third baseman Hallie Hall and Hofstra teammates Meghan Giordano (SS) and Amanda Muffucci (OF) were on the Northeast Region Third Team.

Emily Winstead (P) and Tayle Vitola (2B) of UNCW were tabbed on the Mid-Atlantic Region Third Team. 

The CAA’s 17 selections were sixth-most among all DI athletic conferences behind the SEC (50), Pac-12 (39), Big Ten (38), ACC (33) and Big 12 (25).

NFCA member head coaches from each respective region nominated student-athletes and voted for the teams. All awarded student-athletes now become eligible for the 2022 NFCA Division I All-America squads.
