EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – Ferris State University senior softball standout player Sarah Mueller earned some well-deserved post-season recognition from the National Fastpitch Coaches Association as part of the 2008 Louisville Slugger/NFCA Division II All-Region team.

Mueller, a junior pitcher and utility player, earned 2008 All-Great Lakes Region Second Team honors for her efforts on the diamond – for her combined body of work as a pitcher, outfielder and standout hitter. Mueller becomes the second Bulldog to receive all-region accolades as she joins junior first baseman Amanda Jager who was recognized as a second-team all-region pick by Daktronics earlier this week.

Mueller, who has elevated her play of late as a hitter especially, is coming off a 2007 campaign during which she was named an All-American. She entered the Lewis winner’s bracket game on Friday hitting .324 through 45 games with 47 hits, 10 doubles, six triples, three home runs and 29 runs batted in. As a pitcher, Mueller entered Friday 14-6 with a 2.06 earned run average and 56 strikeouts. In the 1-0 win in 15 innings, over Lewis at the NCAA Division II Regional Tournament in Edwardsville, Ill. Mueller, now 15-6, earned the victory as she threw all 15 innings, allowed six hits, one walk and struck out five.
