Two members of the Lenoir-Rhyne University Softball Team have picked up 2013 NFCA NCAA Division II All-Southeast Region honors. NFCA is the National Fastpitch Coaches Association. L-R senior first baseman Jessica Fellmeth (Waxhaw, N.C.) was named to the all-region first team while junior third baseman Haily Jarman (Wadesboro, N.C.) earned second-team accolades.
Both players garnered all-region laurels for the third consecutive season and played and started in all 53 contests this year. Fellmeth, a 2013 All-South Atlantic Conference Second-Team pick, led the squad in batting average (.359), doubles (13), runs batted in (29) and on-base percentage (.497) this past spring.
Fellmeth was named the 2013 Food Lion South Atlantic Conference Tournament Most Valuable Player after leading the Bears to their fourth consecutive tournament title. Fellmeth is now eligible for All-American accolades. Jarman finished second on the squad in hitting (.331) in 2013 to go along with a team-leading 33 runs scored, 55 hits, five triples and a .554 slugging percentage en route to second-team all-conference honors.
Both players also led Lenoir-Rhyne to a 37-16 record and both the SAC Regular Season and Tournament Championships this year. L-R also advanced to the regional title game before falling to Anderson by a 6-3 score at home on Sunday.
