LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Sixteen players from eight schools in three member regions have garnered 2016 NFCA NJCAA Division III All-America Team recognition, the Association revealed on Tuesday.  

Rock Valley College, which won its third straight NJCAA Division III national championship in May, leads all teams with four honorees, while Herkimer County Community College, the national runner-up the last three years, placed three of its players on the team.

College of DuPage, Ocean County College and Rowan College at Gloucester County each had two selections, while Anoka-Ramsey Community College, Brookdale Community College and Corning Community College had one choice apiece.

There is an equal split of eight freshman and eight sophomores on the team, with six selections each in the Midwest and North Regions and four choices from the East Region.

A trio of sophomores fill the pitching spots, with Rock Valley’s Morgan Adolph a two-time All-American after going 23-2 this season with an 1.76 ERA, 21 complete games, 49 walks and 190 strikeouts in 163 innings. Ocean County’s Ashley Hussey compiled a 15-3 mark over 22 games, while Herkimer’s Dana Nicoletti was a perfect 17-0 with a 1.65 ERA, 35 walks and 126 strikeouts in 97.2 innings.

In the catcher category, Rowan College freshman Lynnsie Collins batted .458 with 66 hits, including 18 doubles and two homers, to go with 43 RBI, while Anoka-Ramsey sophomore and two-time All-American Jen Zidar hit .533 with 65 hits, 14 doubles, three homers, 63 RBI and 11 steals.

At infield, Herkimer sophomore Taylor Daniels, a two-time All-American, is the lone upperclassman after batting .528 with 75 hits, 72 runs, 22 doubles, six triples, 14 homers and 93 RBI this season. Herkimer teammate Molly McGuire batted .451 with 20 doubles, 11 homers and 58 RBI, while Rock Valley freshman Summer Amman collected 59 hits and 49 runs while hitting .444. Brookdale’s Bethany Evans batted .434 and had 12 doubles and nine homers among her 59 hits, while DuPage’s Rachel Martin amassed 81 hits, 18 doubles, three triples and five homers and hit .479.

Rock Valley sophomore Abby Kissack is the last of four two-time All-Americans this season, batting .418 with 61 hits, 19 doubles, eight homers and 44 RBI. Fellow sophomores Kara Molnar of Ocean County and Stephanie Polo of Rowan College and DuPage freshman Marjorie Sloan round out the outfield selections. Molnar hit .548 with 25 extra-base hits, while Polo batted .414 with 22 walks and 16 steals, and Sloan stole 38 bases, scored 64 runs and hit .392.

A pair of freshmen round out the squad, with Rock Valley’s Olivia Fluehr earning the utility spot and Corning’s Haley Williamson getting the designated player/at-large slot. Fluehr hit .436 with 14 doubles, four triples, 13 homers and 72 RBI while also compiling a 20-4 record in the circle with 129 strikeouts and just 16 walks over 140.2 innings. Williamson batted .458 with 14 doubles among her 55 hits and 42 RBI.
