NFCA All-Region Teams (pdf)
SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Sacramento State freshman outfielder Suzy Brookshire received all-Pacific Region accolades when she was named to the third team, it was announced today by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA).
The award honors players from the nation's 10 regions with first, second and third teams selected for each region. The all-region teams were voted on by NFCA member coaches from each respective region, and all the honorees become eligible for selection to the 2017 NFCA Division I All-American teams.
Brookshire becomes just the fourth Sacramento State freshman to receive all-region accolades, joining Desiree Beltran (2009), Lindy Winkler (2003) and Tami Blunt (1993). Overall, Brookshire becomes the 13th Hornet to receive all-region honors during the program's Div. I era (1990-pres.). It also marks the fourth consecutive year a Sacramento State player has been named all-Pacific Region.
Brookshire was recently named first team all-Big Sky Conference after putting together a monster season in which she led the Hornets in nine offensive categories. The Hollister, Calif., native started all 49 games in which she appeared with 42 of those starts coming in left field.
She led or was tied for the team lead in batting average (.358), runs scored (43), hits (54), doubles (8), home runs (15), total bases (109), slugging percentage (.722), on-base percentage (.443) and ops (1.165). The 15 homers are the most in the 50-year history of the program in a single season, shattering the previous record of 12, set by Jamie Schloredt in 2008.
Brookshire's runs scored and slugging percentage are the second best marks in Sacramento State's Div. I era (1990-pres.), and the total bases are the third best mark. Brookshire reached base safely in all but seven games (including a run of 19 straight games from Feb. 25 until March 25), and had a team-best 17 multiple-hit contests.
Named Sacramento State's Female Newcomer of the Year at the Green and Golden Globes, Brookshire hit .393 with seven home runs and 18 RBIs in Big Sky play. Among conference leaders this season, she ranked first in home runs, second in slugging percentage and total bases, third in runs scored, sixth in walks (22) and on-base percentage, and seventh in batting average.
The Hornets recently completed their season with a 21-28-1 overall record and a 10-10 mark in the Big Sky. The Hornets, who won seven of their final 10 games of the season, finished third in the league standings and posted a 1-2 record in the Big Sky's postseason tournament.
