OXFORD, Miss. – Hitting the most doubles and second most RBI in Ole Miss softball single season history were two of many accomplishments sophomore third baseman Allison Brown had in 2013. On Thursday, Brown was recognized for her fantastic season by being named to the National Fast Pitch Coaches Association All-Region Second Team by the South Region’s head coaches.

Brown is the fourth player in Ole Miss history to receive all-region honors, joining Jane Callahan, Lauren Grill and DeDe Justice. Brown is the Rebels’ first all-region selection since Grill, who is the only player in school history to be named to the first team twice in her career.

“Allison had a great sophomore year by moving positions from shortstop and only making one error,” Ole Miss softball head coach Windy Thees said. “As amazing as she was defensively, she also topped all the great things she did offensively as a freshman last year. We’re looking forward to Allison continuing to do great things in the second half of her career.”

Brown made 69 putouts and 65 assists at the hot corner while committing just one error for a .993 fielding percentage. At the plate, the Los Alamitos, Calif., native hit 17 doubles, tied for the most in the Southeastern Conference, and batted in 43 runs, the second most in program history. Brown’s 57 hits and .354 batting average this season were each the sixth best in Ole Miss history.

The NFCA awards honor softball student-athletes from the Association’s 10 regions with first and second teams selected for each region. The all-region teams were chosen by NFCA member coaches from each respective region, and all the honorees now become eligible for selection to one of three 2013 NFCA Division I All-American teams. The 2013 NFCA Division I All-America teams will be announced at 4 p.m. CT on Wednesday, May 29, via NFCA.org.
