NFCA All-West Region Teams

WHITTIER, Calif. – Junior Brittany Attaway (Claremont, Calif.) continues to bring in the post-season awards as she was named to the 2nd Team for the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) All-West Region Team.

The NFCA announced their 360 players chosen to the All-Region teams with 45 of them coming from the West.  Ten players were also chosen from within the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC).  The NFCA All-Region teams are comprised of three 15-player teams in each of the country's eight NCAA regions. All-Region players are nominated and selected by NFCA member coaches in each of the eight Division III regions.

Attaway becomes the first Poet to earn All-West Region honors since 2015 when Samantha Blum, Mercedez Cundiff, Marialena Ahern, and Samantha Mellano received recognition.

In just her first season, Attaway helped lead the Whittier College Softball team to a No. 2 seed in the SCIAC Post Season Tournament, while earning 1st Team All-SCIAC recognition.  She was the top catcher in the conference starting all 42 games behind the dish putting up record numbers, which included a team high 57 hits (14 doubles, three triples, one homerun), 30 runs scored, 35 RBI's, and 19 walks.  She also led the team in batting average (.487) and OB% (.567), and was No. 2 in SLG% (.684).
