Following up becoming Hamilton’s first ever NESCAC all-conference first team softball player earlier this month, Olivia Gozdz (DHS Class of 2012) was selected to the 2013 Division III New England Region All-Region Team by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association last week.

Gozdz belts one out in her record-breaking year.

Gozdz was one of 15 players on the region’s second team and one of only four first-year players on any of the three New England all-region teams.

She is the team’s first all-region selection since 1990.

Gozdz is ranked second in the NESCAC with a .472 batting average.

She set a program single-season record with 50 hits and finished one shy of tying the single-season mark in doubles with 12, and is ranked fourth in the conference with a .504 on-base percentage and seventh with a .604 slugging percentage, and led the team with 23 runs scored.

Gozdz ended the year on a 15-game hit streak and posted 17 multi-hit games.
