LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Palm Beach Atlantic freshman Magnolia West was named to the NFCA All-South Region team by region coaches after her standout season for the ‘Fish.

West was the lone representative for the team after the Sailfish posted a 32-17 overall record. The California native set new single-season team records with a .458 batting average and 76 hits. She led the team with 34 RBI and 15 doubles while scoring 26 runs while batting the middle of the lineup.

The center fielder stole 21 bases on the season with a .494 on-base percentage, both team highs. If the Sailfish were eligible in the Sunshine State Conference she would have led the conference in batting average. She currently ranks in the top-20 nationally in batting average.

The 2017 NFCA Division II All-American teams will be announced on Wednesday, May 24 at the NCAA Division II National Championship Banquet in Salem, Va.
