Hammers and Mooney Named NFCA All-Region

LOUISVILLE, Ky.— Keuka College freshmen Jessie Hammers and Colleen Mooney were named Second Team All-Northeast Region by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association.

Mooney was named a second team pitcher and Hammers made the second team as an at-large selection. The duo was two of just four freshmen to be named to the top two teams in the region.

They are the first Keuka College players to receive the honor since Jill Hart was named Second Team All-Northeast Region in 2014.

The first season at Keuka College was a record-breaking one for Jessie Hammers. The leadoff batter paced the Wolves lineup all season. Hammers broke the Keuka College single-season hits record with 52 this year. The previous record was set by Sara James in 2009. She also topped James' batting average record as Hammers hit .536 on the season, leading the North Eastern Athletic Conference. The freshman also showcased her speed throughout the season. She finished the season with 32 stolen bases, third most in program history. Hammers was recognized by the conference as the NEAC North Player and Rookie of the Year.

Dominating in the circle all year for Keuka College was freshman pitcher Colleen Mooney. She posted a 17-4 record on the season, the second most wins in school history. She threw 18 complete games for the Wolves, amassing 130.1 innings. Mooney struck out 99 batters this season while posting a 1.77 earned run average. Colleen Mooney was named NEAC North Pitcher of the Year for her play during the season.
