LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Postseason awards continued to roll in for the Penn State Altoona softball team on Friday afternoon, when utility player Cameryn Feathers of Martinsburg was named to the second team of the National Fastpitch Coaches Association’s Division III All-Region VII squad.
Feathers is one of only two Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference softball players named to the All-Region VII team, joining Penn State Behrend’s utility player Meghan Petitte, who was a third-team pick.
Feathers was a first-team All-AMCC selection this season, when she cemented herself as one of the top hitters in the conference. Feathers leads the AMCC in batting average (.490), hits (51), and on-base percentage (.546) while ranking second in slugging percentage (.769) and total bases (80), third in triples (4), fourth in runs scored (34), home runs (4), and stolen bases (10), fifth in runs batted in (29), sixth in doubles (9), and 10th in walks (12).
This is the second season in a row that Penn State Altoona softball has had a player named to the All-Region VII squad, as first baseman Gianna Hoppel of Lewistownn received the recognition last spring.
Lions softball is currently competing in the Cleveland Region of the NCAA Division III Tournament, and the team is slated to face the University of Mount Union today, Friday, May 19, at 2:30 p.m. Penn State Altoona holds a 25-13 overall record and won its third-ever AMCC title last weekend.
