Appalachian State University outfielder Allie Cashion was named first-team All-Mideast region by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) on Monday.  The junior from Waxhaw, N.C. became the first Mountaineer to garner all-region since Katie Boyd earned the honor in 2009.  Cashion earned her second-straight first-team all-confernce honor earlier this month by

being not only one of the top hitter in the conference but in the nation. She ranked in the top-30 in the nation for the entire year in home runs per game, RBI per game, slugging percentage and home runs.  She led the Mountaineers in batting average (.396), triples (2), homeruns (16), runs batted in (51), slugging percentage (.836), walks (24) and on base percentage (.494). She is also ASU's all-time career RBI leader with 140 and broke her own single season record of 46 with 51 RBIs.
Cashion was one of five other Southern Conference student-athletes to earn all-region honors. Tomeka Watson from Elon and Erin Foster from Western Carolina joined Cashion as first-team All-Mideast region outfielders. Chattanooga's Sara Poteat earned first-team All-South region and teammate Michelle Fuzzard earned second-team. Georgia Southern's Marie Fogle rounded out the SoCon's six all-region members as second-team All-South region outfielder.
