MSU's Bingham All-Region Again

Midwestern State's Courtney Bingham added another accolade to her resume Thursday when she was named to the National Fast-pitch Coaches' Association All-South Central Region squad.
The junior from Arlington, who earned the same all-region award from Daktronics earlier this week, posted a Lone Star Conference-leading .437 batting and matched a program single-season best 19 doubles to go along with a pair of triples and four homers while driving in 31 runs. Bingham added 10 stolen bases while hitting out of the leadoff and No. 3 positions in the order.
The accolade adds to an impressive postseason haul as she was named an All-Lone Star Conference first teamer and landed on the league's first Golden Glove team for her stellar play in right field.
Bingham was named a second-team All-South Central Region performer by the National Fast-pitch Coaches' Association after helping the Mustangs to their first World Series appearance in 2011 with a .355 average with 11 doubles, five triples and three homers while driving in 44 runs.
She was a Daktronics All-South Central Region second-teamer as a redshirt freshman in 2010 after hitting .364 with 19 doubles and a triple with 29 RBIs.
Bingham, who is MSU's lone representative on the squad, joins five other players from the Lone Star Conference on the first team including Angelo State's Claire Molina, DeeshanaLynn Tafiti and Elsamartina Apo, Tarleton State's Samantha Swanda and Katie Welborn and West Texas A&M's Kimberly LeComte.
