After being a surprising omission from the First Team All-Jayhawk West team in early May, Seward County sophomore outfielder Andrea Sitter got a bit of a consolation on Monday as she was named to the NFCA All-West Region Second Team as announced by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association.
Sitter was one of just three Jayhawk Conference players named to the All-West team as she was joined by Butler’s Sydnee Eck and Monica Islava who were named First and Second Team respectively.
Sitter had a monster year in her only season in the green and white for Seward. She hammered out a team high 96 hits which ranked ninth nationally and far and away led the Jayhawk Conference.
Her 96 hits in 2014 rank second most in school history, behind only the 101 from Bianca Adame in 2012.
Sitter also worked her way into three other all-time top 10s for the Lady Saints in 2014 as her 38 stolen bases rank second, 65 runs scored rank fourth, and her .436 batting average 5th in a single season in school history.
She becomes the first Lady Saint to earn the award since Courtney Auger and Marisa Coates did so during the 2009 season.
