App State Softball’s Houston Named to All-Region Team

App State softball’s Kayt Houston added another achievement to her historic season this week. The National Fastpitch Coaches Association recently announced that 381 student-athletes from 152 different institutions were named to the 2022 DI All-Region Teams with Houston being one of them.

Recognition from the NFCA honors softball student-athletes from the Association’s 10 regions. Awards are assigned to first-team, second-team and third-team selections. All student-athletes that received recognition now become eligible for the 2022 NFCA Division I All-America squads.

In addition to leading the conference in many different offensive categories en route to being named to the All-Sun Belt First Team, the sophomore became the first-ever player to receive this honor in the history of App State’s softball program. The Rock Hill, S.C. native posted a league-high 67 hits and 46 runs. At the conclusion of the regular season, she also led the Sun Belt with 13 home runs.

The awards honor softball student-athletes from the Association’s 10 regions with first, second and third-team selections. NFCA member head coaches from each respective region nominated student-athletes and voted for the teams. All awarded student-athletes now become eligible for the 2022 NFCA Division I All-America squads.

The 2022 All-America teams will be voted on by the NFCA DI All-American Committee in the next few days. All-American selections will be announced on Wednesday, June 1.
