STARKVILLE, Miss. – Caroline Brehm (Hanover, Pa./New Oxford), a freshman on the McDaniel softball team, has been named to the National Fast Pitch Coaches Association (NFCA) All-East region second team, released on Monday.

Brehm, the Centennial Conference (CC) Pitcher of the Year, led the Green Terror (30-14) in the circle all season, pitching the team to third place at the Newport News NCAA Division III softball regional from Thursday to Sunday after leading the way all season.

The right-hander led all of Division III in strikeouts this season with 377 in 231 innings pitched. Her total set a new program and CC single-season record and she finished sixth all-time in Division III history.

In a 14-inning win over Ferrum on Saturday, she broke her own program record for strikeouts in a single game with 20. It was also a new CC record and one shy of the NCAA tournament record.

She finished with a 1.45 earned-run average and walked just 64 batters and allowed only 122 hits. She went 24-10 in the circle with 30 complete games and 11 shutouts – all of which are new program-best marks.
