NEWBERG, Ore. --- Another first was added to the 2015 softball season, as Amanda Woods and Kayla Anderson were both named to the 2015 NCAA Division III All-West Region Second Team as announced Monday by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association, which oversees all levels of college and high school softball.

As in the past, the squad is comprised of three teams in each of the country's eight NCAA regions. All-Region players are nominated and selected by NFCA member coaches in each of the eight Div. III regions.

Anderson earns her second selection in her three years from the NFCA, as she made the All-West Region Third Team her rookie year. This marks Woods first honor from the NFCA and the first time two Bruins have been selected to the team.

Anderson, a junior shortstop from Boise, Idaho, led the Bruins in almost every statistical category on the year. She recorded a batting average of .389, a slugging percentage of .656, scored 38 runs, managed 51 hits, tallied 34 RBIs, blasted eight home runs and hit 15 doubles. In the Northwest Conference, Kayla was first in plate appearances (110), first in at bats (99), first in runs (28), first in RBIs (28), second in home runs (6) and second in hits (37). She was only Bruin to be named to the All-NWC First Team.

Woods, a junior utility player from Pe Ell, Wash., played a huge role for the Bruins splitting her time at first and third base, as well as a couple games in the circle. Woods was third on the team in batting average (.351), slugging percentage (.491), second in on-base percentage (.433), second in hits (40) and third in RBIs (24). In the Northwest Conference, Amanda was fifth in runs (23), sixth in hits (34) and 18th in total bases (42).
