Six Aggies Earn NFCA All-Region Honors

"This is a tremendous honor for these players, who have been such a big part of our team success all year", said head coach Jacquie Joseph, now in her 24th season at MSU and recently won her 800th career game a head coach.

The honor from the NFCA is the second of Davenport's career after picking up third-team All-Mid-Atlantic Region honors as a true freshman. As a First Team member, Cone is now eligible for selection to 2017 NFCA Division I All-America teams.

Canfield has enjoyed a breakout season in her first year as the Wolverines' starting second baseman, ranking second on the team with a.394 batting average and boasting 17 doubles, eight homers and 39 RBI. Junior Lea Foerster (Portage, Mich.), and sophomore Kaitlyn Eveland (Anaheim, Calif.) were voted to the first team, while first-year player Kelcey Carrasco (Woodlake, Calif.) was a second-team pick.

Outfielder Haley Hayden, outfielder Aleah Craighton, and shortstop DJ sanders received NFCA All-Central Region First Team honors, while catcher Lexie Comeaux was a second team selection, and pitcher Alex Stewart received third-team honors.

Cooper is the first player in Auburn history to earn all-region accolades four consecutive years.

Stewart ends her career as a back-to-back all-region pick (first team in 2016), after going 25-3 with a 1.66 ERA in the circle, while reaching 20 wins for the second straight season and posting a ideal 15-0 record in Sun Belt Conference regular season play. She continues to be a reliable source of power and run production, reaching double digit home runs (18) and generating 40-plus RBI (53) for a third straight season. It is her first all-region selection; she also netted her first All-Big Ten first team nod last week.

Clifton made the All-Region First Team for the second time in as many seasons. Her 67 hits on the season placed her fourth in the conference while her 35 stolen bases were second. Eveland leads the team and ranks fifth in the Big Ten with a.414 average, ranks sixth in slugging (.725) and sixth in on-base percentage (.503). She posted a 15-0 record in Sun Belt Conference regular season play in leading Louisiana to conference championship. The game begins at 4 p.m. MDT and is televised live on ESPN3.
