GW Softball's Autumn Taylor Named to NFCA All-Region First Team
Senior is First Colonials' Player Since 2007 to Earn All-Region Honors
May 16, 2013
LOUISVILLE, Ky. - George Washington senior Autumn Taylor was selected to the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) Mid-Atlantic Region First Team, the organization announced on Thursday. Taylor now advances to the national ballot for consideration for All-America honors.
Taylor established herself as one of the best hitters in GW softball history during her four-year tenure in Foggy Bottom. The center fielder, who earned Atlantic 10 All-Conference Second Team honors earlier this month, batted a career-best .350 and slugged .629 with 50 hits, five triples, eight home runs and 44 RBIs in 2013. Those totals rank among the top-10 single-season marks in program history, including second in RBIs and triples, fourth in slugging percentage and fifth in batting average.
A career .293 hitter, Taylor is the Colonials' all-time leader in RBIs with 103 and ranks second with 24 career home runs and fourth with 149 hits. The native of Severna Park, Md., is one of just two Colonials ever to be named A-10 Player of the Week twice in her career.
Taylor becomes the first Colonials' player to be named to an all-region team since Elana Meyers in 2007 and just the second ever; Meyers earned first-team recognition in 2007 after garnering second-team distinction in 2006.
The all-region teams were chosen by NFCA member coaches from each respective region. A total of 263 players from 137 different teams across the nation were selected to all-region squads in the organization's 10 regions with first and second teams selected for each region.
