Boatner Earns Both NFCA and D2CCA NCAA Division II All-American Honors

Anderson, S.C. – Anderson University softball freshman Kayson Boatner earned a spot on the 2019 NFCA Division II All-American Second Team and the D2CCA All-American Honorable Mention Team, announced late Wednesday afternoon.

Boatner was previously named to the NFCA and D2CAA DII All-Southeast Region First Team becoming eligible for the All-America squads.

The native of Fortson, Ga., hit a team-high 15 homeruns which was tied for first in the South Atlantic Conference. Boatner finished the season batting .353 while knocking in a team-high 57 RBI. For her efforts, she was named to the All-SAC First Team, SAC All-Tournament team and both the NFCA and D2CCA All-Southeast Region First Teams.

The Trojans earned a trip to the NCAA Southeast Regionals by earning an automatic bid after winning the SAC Championship, eventually losing on the final day of the regionals to SAC member Lincoln Memorial.
