ACU's Winkfield voted All-America regional 2nd team

ABILENE, Texas - Former ACU centerfielder Keanna Winkfield was voted second team NCAA Division II all-South Central region by Daktronics.  The team was released late Monday afternoon.

Late last week, Winkfield – who completed her two-year Wildcat career two weeks ago at the Lone Star Conference Post-Season Tournament – was voted first team all-region by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association.

Winkfield batted .396 with 48 runs this spring and is the first Wildcat outfielder to make an all-region first team. She was a second team all-region selection in 2012, and earlier this month was named first team all-Lone Star Conference.

The Giddings native also received a Golden Glove award from the conference as well as a spot on the Capital One academic all-district team.

Winkfield's single-game highs from this year included four RBI vs. Oklahoma Panhandle, and four hits vs. Texas A&M-International and Kingsville. She hit her first home run as a Wildcat last month during a 10-8 victory at Eastern New Mexico and went 2-for-4 with a run scored in ACU's lone postseason game vs. West Texas A&M.

Winkfield transferred to ACU in the fall of 2011 following two years at Trinity Valley Community College, where she was a two-time all-conference selection.
