(Seguin) – The National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) named Texas Lutheran senior right-hander Maitlin Raycroft to its All-America Second Team for a second consecutive year.

The NFCA Division III All-America Softball Teams are selected from the pool of players that earned First Team All-Region recognition. From that All-Region pool, eight NCAA Division III head coaches representing the eight NCAA regions select the All-America teams.
Raycroft, twice the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Year, followed up last season's 21-3 pitching record and eight no-hitters with a mark of 20-1 to go with five more no-hitters.

Raycroft has the top two single-season no-hitter totals in NCAA Division III history. She is second all-time in total no-hitters thrown by an NCAA DIII pitcher.

In 2018, Raycroft posted a 1.22 ERA with that 20-1 record. She appeared in 28 games and made 24 starts. She registered 13 complete games and seven shutouts.

Raycroft struck out 152 batters in 114-1/3 innings pitched. She was named the SCAC Pitcher of the Year for a second consecutive year, and she too never lost an SCAC regular-season or conference tournament game.

Raycroft has the two-best win totals (21 in 2017 and 20 in 2018) in school history. She is TLU's all-time leader in winning percentage for a pitcher. Raycroft was 41-4 as a Bulldog for a career winning percentage of .911.

When Raycroft started her TLU pitching career in 2017, TLU Softball had 14 no-hitters on the books. TLU Softball now has 27 after 13 no-hitters from Raycroft.

With Raycroft on the squad over the last two seasons, the Bulldogs went a combined 77-9 overall and finished as an NCAA Division III regional runner-up twice. The Bulldogs won two SCAC Regular-Season Championships and two SCAC tournament titles.
