VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. -- Freshman Hanna Hull and junior Cassetty Howerin were recognized on the Fastpitch News (FPN) All-American teams as the squads were announced recently. Hull was honored on the first team while Howerin received second-team laurels.

Hull, a left-handed pitcher from Chesterfield, Va., finished the season with a 32-3 record with a 0.51 ERA to go with 372 strikeouts and five saves. She set new conference records for wins, ERA, and strikeouts while matching the ODAC mark for saves in a season.

She was recently named National Player of the Year by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA), a first in program history. She was also National Freshman of the Year, ODAC Pitcher of the Year, and ODAC Rookie of the Year.

Howerin, a first baseman from Dover, Del., earned Second Team All-American honors after garnering ODAC Player of the Year honors. She was a preseason All-American by FPN prior to the start of the season. Howerin was a threat across the board this year, batting .434 with 12 home runs, 56 RBI, 49 runs, and 26 stolen bases.
