Drevdahl named to All-West Region First Team

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Off a career-best senior season, Emily Drevdahl has been selected to the National Fastpitch Coaches Association All-West Region First Team, the organization announced on Wednesday.

Drevdahl, who hit a career-high .445 and pitched her most-ever innings (71.0), was selected as the best utility student-athlete in the West Region. She is Lewis & Clark's first first-team selection since 1993 when KC Jones was selected NAIA All-District First Team.

Already an All-Northwest Conference First-Team pick this season, Drevdahl joined former teammate Paige Salavea as an All-West Region selection. Salavea earned a third-team nod in 2016.

In addition to her career-high batting average, which ranked second in the NWC, Drevdahl hit high-water marks for runs scored, hits, doubles, home runs and walks drawn. She finished the season with four strikeouts, the lowest of her career. Her .487 on-base percentage and .791 slugging percentage were the best over her four years at Lewis & Clark and both ranked in the top three of the NWC.

Her 12 doubles matched Caroline DeVincenzi's 2010 total for the most in a single season by anyone in school history.

Drevdahl was one of three from the NWC to make the All-West Region First Team. The only others were selected from Linfield, which won the conference championship.
