Three area players had roles in leading the
Misericordia softball team to a Freedom Conference championship and a berth in the NCAA Division III softball tournament.
Freshman third baseman Kristi Seiler, a Northern Lehigh grad, was a first-team All-Freedom selection and earned Rookie of the Year honors.
Seiler, who has started 42 of the Cougars' 43 games, is among the team leaders in nearly every offensive statistical category. She has a .391 batting average, seven home runs, 45 RBIs and 28 runs scored.
