LOUISVILLE, KY.Amber Schisler has been named to the 2017 National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) All-Region Southeast Third Team, as voted on by the head coaches in the region.

Schisler joins the third team in the Utility/Pitcher position for her efforts not only at the plate but also as a contributor to the pitching staff for Campbell.

The San Diego, Calif. native played every game for the Camels in 2017, earning Big South Player of the Week honors twice and Big South Player of the Year honors.

She finished first in the league in many offensive categories, including batting average (.431), slugging percentage (.850), on-base percentage (.618), runs (47), home runs (18), and walks (57).

She currently sits second in on-base percentage in the NCAA, as well as eighth in walks, ninth in slugging percentage and 11th in home runs.

In the circle, she went 8-6 in 2017 with one save and two complete games. She pitched 81.1 innings and fanned 51 batters. 

During the latter portion of the 2017 campaign, Schisler set a new NCAA record for most consecutive plate appearances having reached base with 26. She broke the previous record of 18, which was held by Maddie O'Brien of Florida State in 2014.

Schisler will continue her softball career in the Austria with the Witches Linz organization in Linza, Austria.

The awards honor softball student-athletes from the Association's 10 regions with first, second and third team selections. NFCA member coaches from each respective region voted on the teams, and all the honorees now become eligible for selection to the 2017 NFCA Division I All-American squads.
