Prachyl earns All-Region softball honors

By Mark Warde

The National Fast Pitch Coaches Association (NFCA) tabbed Bailey Terry and Kayla Prachyl to the 2016 All-Region 2nd Team on Wednesday.

The two Lady Rams were among 172 student-athletes from 71 NAIA programs to receive an all-region nod. Terry and Prachyl were recognized in spite of competing with a stacked Southwest Region that included No.1 Oklahoma City, who Wesleyan upset in the SAC tournament to advance to the championship game, and No.9 LSU-Alexandria.

Terry, from Las Cruces, NM, played very solid and consistent at third base all season and led the Lady Rams in batting with a .385 average as a freshman. She also led the team in homers with 5, RBI with 37, and slugging at .595. She also notched a three RBI game five times this season.

Prachyl, a sophomore from Ennis, changed her primary position from first base to outfield due to injury and did not skip a beat. She finished this season just behind Terry in batting with a strong .383 average. The 5’11 left-hander was also second on the team with 27 RBI, 24 stolen bases (which ranks 36th nationally), and a slugging percentage of .461. Prachyl maintained a .361 batting average over her two year stint at Texas Wesleyan.

The NFCA is the professional growth organization for fast pitch softball coaches from all level of play. From high school to NCAA DI, the NFCA works with USA Today in producing polls for each level of competitive fast pitch softball. The NFCA also organizes collegiate tournaments and recruiting camps throughout the nation.

Prachyl was four-time all-district selection for Coach Rodney McNeill at Ennis, including first team status as a sophomore and junior.

Majoring in athletic training, she is a daughter of Jeff and Kim Prachyl, and has three siblings; Kolt, Kris, and Justin.
