Louisville, Ky. -- Two Lynchburg College softball players were included on the National Fastpitch Coaches Association's All-Atlantic Region teams, the NFCA announced Wednesday with the release of its all-region teams.

Junior third baseman Taylor Mabry (Bassett, Va.) was named to the region's first team, while sophomore designated player Sarah Commons (Glen Allen, Va.) earned second-team laurels.

It marks the first time the Hornets have placed multiple players on the all-region teams since 2014.

Mabry led the Hornets in slugging percentage (.712), on-base percentage (.490), home runs (10), and RBI (36) this past season. She hit at a .408 clip with eight doubles and 22 walks and also held down the hot corner admirably, making just five errors in 43 games at third base.

Commons justified her spot as the designated player by posting a team-best batting average of .417 and finishing tied for second on the team with 30 RBI. She knocked eight doubles, a triple, and a homer on the season.

Both players were among Lynchburg's six All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference performers, announced on the first of this month.

Lynchburg finished the season with a 30-14 record and received an at-large bid to the NCAA Division III tournament.
