Glover Named to All-Region Second Team

STARKVILLE, Miss.-Boise State sophomore center fielder Tara Glover was named to the National Fastpitch Coaches Association All-Pacific Region Second Team Thursday, the organization announced.

At the end of the regular season, Glover is the national leader in hits (88) and hits per game (1.63). Her .476 batting average ranks third in the country and is the best in the NFCA's Pacific Region.

Among the six outfielders tabbed All-Pacific Region (three on the first team and three on the second team) the Grants Pass, Ore., native led the way in triples (four) and runs scored (54). Glover ranked second in doubles (14), on-base percentage (.510), slugging percentage (.708) and fielding percentage (.967). She was also in the top three for home runs (seven), RBI (29) and stolen bases (18).

Named the Mountain West co-Player of the Year earlier in the week, Glover was one of five conference players to earn all-region accolades (two in the Pacific Region, three in the West Region).

Glover, a transfer from Utah, set single-season school records in batting average, hits, doubles, triples and stolen bases during her first campaign with the Broncos.

Boise State has had a student-athlete selected as all-region each of the program's first four seasons as Glover joins Kathy Cox (2009 and 2010) and Devon Bridges (2011).

The all-region teams were chosen by NFCA member coaches from their respective regions and all honorees will now be eligible for selection to one of three 2012 NFCA Division I All-America teams. There were a total of 263 student-athletes from 129 different schools represented on either the first or second team in the NFCA's 10 regions.

The All-America teams will be announced May 30, at 4 p.m. (CT) on
