Sophomore Caitlyn Ivy added second NFCA All-Central Region honors to her resume on Thursday.
STARKVILLE, Miss. — UTSA sophomore Caitlyn Ivy has been named to the Louisville Slugger/National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) All-Central Region second team, the organization announced on Thursday.

Ivy recently was named first-team All-Southland Conference at shortstop after a breakout campaign. She led the Roadrunners in batting average (.383), hits (62), doubles (seven), home runs (12), RBIs (40), total bases (107), slugging percentage (.660) and on-base percentage (.455) and also scored 36 runs.

The Huntington native leads the league in homers and slugging and ranks second in RBIs and total bags.  She registered 19 multiple-hit games, including five with three base knocks, and drove in two or more runs in 11 contests. Her .383 batting average ranks seventh on UTSA’s single-season list and her career .353 mark stands third all-time.

Ivy is the 10th Roadrunner to be honored by the NFCA on its all-region squad and the first since three-time honoree Jessica Rogers picked up second-team accolades in 2007.

Five other Southland players were named to the team, including first-team outfielder Hannah Schwarz of Texas A&M-Corpus Christi and second-team members Leah Boatright and Chandler Hall of Texas State, Kendal Harper of Stephen F. Austin and Caley Jeter of Texas A&M-Corpus Christi.
