Four ABAC softball players named all-region

TIFTON — Four players from the Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College softball team have been selected for the National Junior College Athletic Association All-Region XVII team.

Jenna Byrd from Macon and Rachel Hill from Snellville were named to the first team, and Brittany Davis from Lizella and Taylor Boyett from Fayetteville, Tenn., were picked for the second team. Byrd and Hill also made the all-tournament team along with ABAC’s Maiah Talmage from Valdosta.

Coach Donna Campbell’s Fillies wound up second in the NJCAA Region XVII tournament, falling to top-seeded Darton State by a 7-5 score in the championship game. Ranked 13th in the nation, Darton has now won 19 consecutive games heading into the national tournament in St. George,Utah.

ABAC rolled up a 29-16 record this year including a 17-7 worksheet in the conference. Campbell, who won a national championship at ABAC in her first year as the head coach in 1996, expressed a great deal of pride in the effort of this year’s squad.

“I am so proud of this team,” Campbell said. “We had a great year.”
