Persich Named to NFCA All-Region Team

GENESEO, N.Y. - SUNY Geneseo junior outfielder Alyssa Persich was named to the National Fastpitch Coaches of America (NFCA) All-Northeast Region Second Team, announced on Wednesday.

Persich earned all-region honors for the first time in her career after leading the Knights in batting average (.364), hits (47), runs scored (30) and triples (3). Persich drove in a career-high 18 runs, including a team-high six in the conference tournament, and was named First Team All-SUNYAC earlier this season. She helped the Knights to a 32-9 record, the team's first 30-win season since 2002, and led the team to a SUNYAC Championship and an NCAA Tournament appearance as well. Persich reached the 100-hit threshold earlier this season and currently ranks ninth in program history with 142 hits.

Persich becomes the second active member of the Knights to earn NFCA All-Region honors, joining junior Danni Napoli, who was named to the NFCA Northeast Region Second Team last season.
