Entire NFCA All-Region List
LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Six Arizona State softball players were named to the National Fastpitch Coaches Association All-Region Team. Out of 137 different teams to have athletes selected to the Division I teams, the Sun Devils are one of just five squads to have all six of their nominated players earn accolades.
Earning the nod for Arizona State in the West Region:
Dallas Escobedo, P, First Team
Amber Freeman, C, First Team
Haley Steele, 3B, First Team
Cheyenne Coyle, SS, First Team
Mackenzie Popescue, P, Second Team
Bailey Wigness, OF, Second Team
Dallas Escobedo represents the only repeat honoree for ASU (2011, 2012, 2013); the remaining five 2013 honorees have earned their first NFCA All-Region accolade. This is the third consecutive year that ASU has placed all six nominees on a team.
The All-Region teams were chosen by NFCA member coaches from each respective region and all honorees are now eligible for selection to one of three 2013 NFCA Division I All-American teams. All-American teams will be announced on Wednesday, May 29.
