SU softball: Raiders Marsteller and Myers honored
Raiders sophomore Hannah Marsteller (Fredericksburg, Va./Riverbend) is the 2021 Division II Conference Commissioners Association (D2CCA) Atlantic Region Player of the Year; as she and freshman Taylor Myers (Fayetteville, Pa./Chambersburg Area) each earned another All-Atlantic Region First Team classification.
Softball annually has two All-Region teams. One is selected by coaches and sponsored by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA). Sports information directors choose the other, which is sponsored by the D2CCA.
Marsteller (first base) and Myers (outfield) are both on the All-Region First Teams, receiving the D2CCA honors Wednesday. They are also on the All-Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Eastern Division First Team. It marks the third award for each woman this postseason.
Marsteller, one of 15 finalists for the 2021 Schutt Sports/NFCA Division II Player of the Year award, leads NCAA Division II in slugging (1.103). She posted a .500 batting average; and she ranks among the nation’s Top 5 with 18 home runs, 64 RBIs and 128 total bases.
Myers ranked third in the PSAC with 57 hits and fourth in the PSAC with 41 runs scored. As SU’s leadoff hitter, Myers produced 20 multi-hit games and a season-long hitting streak of 12 games. She hit .418, stole eight bases and posted a .445 on-base percentage.
About the teams
Sports information directors from NCAA Division II Atlantic Region schools and conferences selected the two all-region teams. The process concludes with All-American selections announced later in the month. The Atlantic Region consists of schools from the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA); the Mountain East Conference (MEC) and the PSAC, along with independents Bluefield State and Salem.
The Division II Conference Commissioners Association sponsors the team.. The association encourages and promotes Division II athletics and high standards of sportsmanship as important elements of higher education. The CCA is a key communications link among the conferences to discuss views, policies and regulations that impact Division II intercollegiate athletics. It works closely with the NCAA as a communications channel to NCAA Division II member colleges and universities.
