DURHAM, N.C. – Danielle Liermann, who recently wrapped up her senior season at Austin Peay, was among those named to Softball America’s inaugural All-American teams, Wednesday, earning second-team honors at third base.

The Simi Valley, Calif., native batted .365 this past season, including a program single-season record 18 home runs and 52 RBI, while also becoming the program’s all-time leader in hits (228), doubles (45), home runs (49) and RBIs (175).

She also was named to the Ohio Valley Conference First Team and to the National Fastpitch Coaches Association’s Central Region Third Team.

Liermann’s selection to the Softball America All-American Second Team was the highest by any player from the Ohio Valley Conference, with Southeast Missouri outfielder Rachel Anderson being the only other player from the OVC being selected to one of the squads, earning a slot on the third team.

Each of the three teams are made up of 20 players and are broken down to four pitchers, two first basemen, two second basemen, two third basemen, two shortstops (except honorable mention), four outfielders, a utility/pitcher and a utility/non-pitcher or designated player.

The All-American teams were voted on by the staff of Softball America and an advisory committee made up of softball personnel from around the country.
