NW grad Wehr named to D-III All-Atlantic Region team
Moravian College sophomore catcher Brooke Wehr, a graduate of Northwestern Lehigh, has been named to the 2019 National Fastpitch Coaches Association Division III All-Atlantic Region Third Team.
All-Region players are nominated and selected by NFCA member coaches in each of the eight Division III regions.
Wehr, who made the All-Atlantic Region Third Team for the second consecutive spring, posted a .385 average, 52 hits, 44 runs, seven doubles, three triples, seven home runs and 30 RBIs while missing the Landmark Conference Tournament due to an injury. Wehr, who made the Landmark All-Conference First Team as a catcher in 2019 and an outfielder in 2018, was an at-large selections to the All-Region Third Team which is made up of the top remaining 15 players receiving votes after the First and Second Teams are determined.
“Brooke had another tremendous year in our program while transitioning from the outfield to catcher,” noted head coach John Byrne. “She has continued to hit for power and helped give us a lead early in games a number of times this season. We’re excited to have her for two more years.”
The Greyhounds finished the 2019 season with a 32-7 overall record. Moravian was 11-1 in the Landmark Conference regular season as the Hounds reached the postseason for the 25th consecutive spring.
