HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - The 2016 Division II Conference Commissioners Association Softball (D2CCA) All-South Region Team was announced on Monday, headlined by Player of the Year Brooklynn Clark from North Alabama and Valdosta State’s Caitlyn Calhoun who is the region’s Pitcher of the Year.
Palm Beach Atlantic’s Victoria Gonzalez was named to the D2CCA All-South Region Second Team Monday afternoon. Gonzalez, a junior, finished second on the team with a .395 batting average and second on the team with 58 hits. She led the team with a .605 slugging percentage, 48 runs batted in, 10 doubles and seven home runs.
The Miami, Fla. native broke two of Palm Beach Atlantic’s career records in 2016, Runs Batted In with 136 and Home Runs with 22 in her three years with the Sailfish.
The Gulf South Conference placed 22 players on the two teams, while the Sunshine State Conference had five representatives and the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference had one selection.
Those that earned First Team status will now advance to the All-America ballot.
The Division II Conference Commissioners Association encourages and promotes Division II athletics and high standards of sportsmanship as important elements of higher education. The CCA is a key communications link among the conferences as they discuss views, policies and regulations that impact Division II intercollegiate athletics and works closely with the NCAA as a communications channel to NCAA Division II member colleges and universities.
