JONESBORO – Rachel Hinson, a member of Arkansas State University’s 2018 World Series runner-up softball team, has been selected to the first team All-American squad by the National Club Softball Association. This is the second consecutive year Hinson, who plays at third base for the Red Wolves, has been named an All-American by the NCSA. The right-hander from Vilonia is one of four players chosen following A-State’s national championship run in 2017. Hinson led her team with a .662 hitting average that included 65 times at the plate. She finished with 43 hits, also tops on the team, 15 doubles and three triples. Her four home runs led the team as did her 40 runs batted in. The junior finished the season with eight stolen bases. She also was named to A-State’s 2018 Spring Chancellor’s List. Arkansas State advanced to the 2018 NCSA World Series after claiming the Mid-America championship. It was the program’s sixth straight title bid. The World Series’ top-seeded Red Wolves opened pool play, defeating Rutgers (13-3), losing to Central Michigan (5-3) and rebounding with a win over San Diego State (8-5). Following pool play, all teams were reseeded and Arkansas State went into bracket play seeded sixth, and knocked off 11th-seeded Iowa State (11-1), defeated James Madison (6-3), and beat Florida State (8-6), then lost to Navy (10-0), during a game filled with frequent rain and lightning delays. A-State knocked off James Madison (4-3) on the final day of the series and dropped an 11-5 decision to Navy in the championship game. The Red Wolves ended the season ranked No. 2 in the final Rawlings top 20 poll. # # # This and other news releases also available at:<>
