LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Rawlings Sporting Goods Company, Inc. revealed the nine recipients of 2024 NAIA Rawlings Gold Glove Award®, presented by the NFCA, on Friday.

Highlighting the 2024 team are four All-Americans in Midland pitcher Alliyah Rincon, Madonna catcher Mackenzie Ming, University of the Cumberlands second baseman Carly Oliver and Central Methodist University shortstop Madison Roberts. Oliver and Avila University center fielder Chelsea Kurtz are repeat honorees.

Rincon’s and Ming’s respective teammates Halle Meyer (right field) and Regan Finkbeiner (left field), along with Kurtz make up the outfield winners. Kurtz also took home the 2024 New Balance/NFCA Golden Shoe award yesterday (June 6).

Recipients of the Rawlings Gold Glove Award, presented by the NFCA, were selected by the NFCA’s NAIAI All-America Committee, following regional voting to identify the finalists at each position. The group utilized fielding statistics and school-submitted video to closely examine finalists and select the winners at every defensive position. Any student-athlete that competed in the current championship year and was nominated by their head coach who is a member in good standing with the NFCA was eligible for consideration for this prestigious accolade.
