SAINT LEO, Fla. – Just one day after being named to the Daktronics All-Region Second Team, softball senior outfielder Tiffinee Harvey was tabbed National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) All-South Region Second Team, it was announced Thursday afternoon by the NFCA headquarters. It marks her third postseason award.
Joining Harvey on the distinct list were eight other members from the Sunshine State Conference, including Pitcher of the Year, Kirsten Frame (Rollins).
Harvey had a stellar season for the Green & Gold, starting in all 53 games. She led the squad in hitting, posting a .383 batting average, while collecting a team-best 64 hits. In fact, Harvey was the team leader in numerous offensive categories including, slugging percentage (.737), on-base percentage (.452), and runs scored with 40.
She also belted 11 home runs and drove in 32 runs over the 53 game stretch, while collecting 22 multiple-hit games and tabulating hitting-streaks of nine, seven, and six games.
