Posted by on July 15, 2013 – 1:13 pm

The National Fastpitch Coaches Association named its All-American and All-Region high school/college teams throughout the country.   At the high school level, the East Valley was well-represented.

Basha third baseman Kylie Shull was named to the All-American Second Team. Teammate Hailee Siroky was named to the third team as a catcher.

Desert Mountain ace Andy Wellins was among four pitchers to earn First Team All-Region honors for the West Division.  From Basha, Siroky, Shull, outfielder Brooke Breland  and designated player (“at-large”) Brielle Breland were also first-team honorees.

Desert Mountain shortstop Sam Pederson and outfielder Lexi Pierson were second-team choices for the West region, as was Basha outfielder Nicole Matta.

On the college side, former St. Mary’s and current Arizona State standout pitcher Dallas Escobedo was named a Second Team All-American in Division I.

A complete list of high school kids can be found here and here.

The awards are given to schools (high school and college) whose coaches are members of the NFCA.
