BELLINGHAM, Wash. - Western Washington University first baseman/utility player Alexie Levin (pronounced Lah-VEEN) has been named to the National Fastpitch Coaches Association Division II West Region All-Star team announced Thursday.
Levin, a sophomore from Everett, is the first player in school history to receive first-team honors from the NFCA. WWU has had 11 second-team picks.
The 5-foot-7 Levin batted .424 with 59 hits in 139 at bats. She set four school season records with 10 home runs, 47 runs batted in, 103 total bases and a slugging percentage of .741.
"Alexie is so deserving of this award as she had a great year for us," said WWU head coach Amy Suiter. "She is an all-around athlete, playing multiple positions and led us in almost every offensive category. She is a pleasure to coach, so very humble, and her team and coaching staff are so proud of her for this accomplishment."
Levin was the 2014 Great Northwest Athletic Conference Player of the Year, finished second in the conference in all three Triple Crown categories (batting average, home runs and RBI) and led in slugging percentage.
Levin, who also had 14 doubles, posted a fielding percentage of .987 with just two errors in 159 chances.
All of the NFCA honorees are eligible for selection to one of three NFCA Division II All-America squads to be announced on May 21.
WWU finished with a 30-14 record, narrowly missing out on a berth in the NCAA II West Regional, and placed second in the GNAC standings at 17-7.
