BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Western Washington University junior Shearyna Labasan was named to the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) NCAA Division II All-West Region Team as a Second Team selection.
Labasan (Mililani, HI/Maryknoll) was selected to the team in the utility-pitcher role in voting conducted by NCAA Division II West Region head coaches. The junior was also one of 13 First Team All-Great Northwest Athletic Conference selections announced last week. Labasan is one of five GNAC players listed on the 25-player All-West Region Team. Labasan also earned All-West Region honors from D2CCA as a sophomore in 2017.
Labasan finished her junior season as one of the top two-way players in the conference as a third baseman, second baseman, starting pitcher and relief pitcher during WWU’s 15-32 season in 2018.
At the plate she led the team batting .421 (59-for-140) with 31 runs scored, 11 doubles, 4 home runs, 17 RBI and 22 walks.

She recorded at least one hit in 34 of 46 games and led Western with 19 multi-hit games.
Labasan’s .421 batting average is 3rd-highest in WWU single-season history and her .373 career batting average (123-for-330) is the highest in program history (min. 250 at-bats).
In the circle she was 5-18 with 2 saves and a 3.48 ERA, tying for the GNAC lead with 18 complete games and tied for 2nd with 2 saves. She is also 5th in the conference in innings pitched (142.2) and games started (21), while tied for 3rd with 102 strikeouts.
