Oklahoma City, Okla. -- The National Fastpitch Coaches Association named Lynchburg College junior Taylor Mabry (Bassett, Va.) a second-team All-American for 2018, the softball governing body announced Wednesday night with its presentation of the elite Division III postseason awards.

The Hornets' third baseman becomes just the fourth player in Lynchburg history to earn All-America honors and the first since Elizabeth Perkins in 2008.

Mabry adds the award to an already-crowded trophy shelf for the 2018 season, which includes first-team All-Atlantic Region honors from the NFCA and a second-team All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference nod as voted by the league's coaches.

Her .690 slugging percentage, .477 on-base percentage, 10 home runs, and 36 RBI all ranked top five in the ODAC and led the Hornet club. Mabry added a .395 batting average, eight doubles, and 22 walks on offense.

Defensively, she played all 43 games at third base and made just five errors.

She had a knack for coming up in big games, hitting .361 with eight runs scored, four homers, and nine RBI against teams that reached the NCAA tournament this season.

Lynchburg finished the season with a 30-14 record and received an at-large bid to the NCAA Division III tournament, the sixth national tournament appearance for the program. The team received votes in the NFCA coaches' poll on multiple occasions during the season.
