Thirty Big 12 student-athletes have been named to the 2011 Louisville Slugger/NFCA Division I All-Region Teams for softball, the National Fastpitch Coaches Association announced.

The all-region teams were chosen by NFCA member coaches from each region, and all the honorees will now be eligible for selection to the Louisville Slugger/NFCA All-America first, second or third teams.  In addition, conference pitchers and players of the year not selected to the regional teams were added for All-America consideration.

Texas led the Conference with seven student-athletes making the list in the Central Region.  Junior Nadia Taylor and sophomores Blaire Luna and Taylor Hoagland were named to the first team.  Oklahoma and Missouri paced the Big 12 with the most first-team selections as they each placed four on their respective regional squads.
