The National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) announced the 2012 NFCA Division I All-Region teams, and the Southeastern Conference had 27 athletes named between two regions.  In the South region, the SEC had 10 of the 12 first team members and two second team members.  In the Southeast region, the SEC also had 10 of 12 first team selections and five second team selections. 

Alabama was the only team this year to place all six of its nominees on its respective region’s first team. Tennessee was second in the league with five selections, followed by Florida and Georgia with four each. Arkansas, LSU, Mississippi State and South Carolina had two selections each.    

All honorees are eligible for selection to the NFCA All-America teams which will be announced on May 30.

The all-region teams were chosen by NFCA member coaches from each region. In addition, conference pitchers and players of the year not selected to the regional teams were added for All-America consideration.
