Was named NFCA First Team All-Region. She led the team in batting average, slugging pct. and on-base pct.

Jill Pontius (Eagle Bend, Minn.) was named to the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) All-Region First Team. It is the first time in school history that a Concordia player has been named first team all-region.

Pontius caps off a tremendous senior year that saw her named to the MIAC All-Conference team for the first time in her career after being named all-conference honorable mention in her sophomore and junior years. This season she hit .447, the second highest average in school history. Besides batting average, she led the team in hits (38), doubles (11), slugging percentage (.718) and on-base percentage (.467). Her slugging percentage of .718 is also a new school record.

Pontius, a four-year starter at catcher, played in 27 games this year without committing an error, which led all MIAC catchers. She also led the league in throwing out runners attempting to steal.

She ends her career with a .350 batting average, second best in school history.
