Heinze picked All-Region
The accolades continue to come in for Mount St. Mary’s junior Rachel Heinze, a St. Mary’s Ryken High School graduate from Charlotte Hall, who was named Third Team All-Region at utility/non-pitcher by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association.
Heinze was named first-team All-Northeast Conference at the utility position and the NEC’s Most Improved Player.
The junior outfielder/catcher had a record-breaking season for the Mountaineers, leading the team with a .347 average, 44 runs scored, 12 doubles, 19 home runs, 40 RBIs and 12 stolen bases.
Heinze’s 19 home runs smashed both the Mount’s and the NEC’s single-season record for homers. The previous NEC mark was 16 set by Wagner’s Andrea Lazzari (2009) while the Mount record of 11 was set by Liz Christiansen in 2010.
