[nfca release...]

STARKVILLE, Miss. -- Freshman outfielder Jessica Phillips and junior catcher Deannie Plemon were chosen to the 2010 Louisville Slugger/NFCA Division I Mid-Atlantic All-Region softball teams. Phillips, the 2010 America East Rookie of the Year, was named to the first team, while Plemon was picked to the second team.

"Jess and Deannie both had excellent years and provided great leadership on the field for us," head coach Michelle Burrell said. "I look forward to having them both back next year."

Phillips set school single-season records for most runs (38), home runs (15), slugging percentage (.770) and walks (20). As BU's leadoff hitter, she also ranked second on the team with a .435 on-base percentage. Phillips was one of three freshman selected to the Mid-Atlantic First Team.

Plemon led Binghamton with a .376 batting average, 50 hits and 44 RBI. She also ranked second on the team with 14 home runs, 10 doubles, .767 on-base percentage. She also ranked second in league play with a .434 batting average. She posted a school-record 17-game hitting streak and is the school record-holder for most career home runs and runs batted in. Plemon was also chosen to the America East First Team earlier this month.

Phillips and Plemon are the first BU softball players selected to an NFCA All-Region since the school moved to the Division I level in 2002.

BU posted its first-winning season in its nine-year Division I history in 2010 and its 24 wins were a program record.

The all-region teams were chosen by NFCA member coaches from each region, and all the honorees will now be eligible for selection to the Louisville Slugger/NFCA All-America first, second or third teams.

The NFCA Division I All-American teams will be announced on Wednesday, June 2.
