Louisiana Ragin' Cajun softball sophomore shortstop Alissa Dalton and sophomore pitcher Summer Ellyson have been named to the 2018 National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) Division I All-Central Region Team.

Dalton, a sophomore from Cypress, Texas, has been outstanding this season. The first-team All-Sun Belt Conference selection, and the Sun Belt Conference Newcomer of the Year, hit .376, 3 home runs, 30 RBI, stole 11 bases and was terrific on defense. (You can vote for Alissa Dalton as newcomer of the year here).

Ellyson, also a first-team All-Sun Belt selection, has been one of the best arms in the country. She's in the top 30 nationally in ERA and fewest hits allowed, top 40 in victories and top 50 in strikeouts.

Louisiana takes on Houston tomorrow at 3pm in the first game of the Baton Rouge Regional. Pregame begins at 2:45pm on ESPN1420, ESPN1420.com and the ESPN1420 app.
