Misenheimer, N.C. (May 15, 2019)
– Pfeiffer University senior softball player Vada Blue Sherrill  has been tabbed as a contender for the 2019 Schutt Sports/NFCA National Player of the Year.

Sherrill, a product of Hiddenite, N.C., completed her Pfeiffer career in style, helping the Falcons claim back-to-back ECAC Championships last weekend with a 9-1 win at Penn State-Behrend.  Pfeiffer finished the year with an overall record of 36-7.

In the Falcons' three ECAC tournament games, she became the first player in NCAA history, regardless of division, to reach 200 hits (251), runs scored (255), RBI (200), and stolen bases (201).

The watch list is compiled annually by the NFCA's Division III All-America committee and will subsequently be cut to 25 and 10 players throughout the season.  The winner will then be chosen among 10 candidates following the NCAA Division III Championship.
