Two Lady Hawks – senior pitcher/first baseman Brigitte Skaggs and senior center fielder Peyton Gardner – were named to the 5th Region Fastpitch Coaches Association’s All-Region Team.


Each of the 18 schools in the region could nominate four players for the team, but coaches couldn’t vote for their own players. No player was unanimous and it took nine votes for a player to make the 16-player squad. Coaches could vote for 15 opposing players.

Skaggs was a preseason All-Region pick.

The 5th Region will play the 8th Region in an admission-free nine-inning All-Star game at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the University of Louisville’s Ulmer Softball Stadium.
