Former Nevada Lady Tigers softball standout Mackenzie Pritchett, now attending Avila University in Kansas City, was recently tabbed as a Heart of America All-Conference First-team selection.

According to an Avila University press release, "Pritchett earned First Team All-Conference honors, as well as a Rawlings Gold Glove for her play at second base in her first season with the Eagles after transferring from Crowder College."

The Avila press release also stated, "Pritchett had a stellar campaign in her first season with the Eagles. The junior transfer was the only Eagles player to appear in all 57 games this season, batting .337 with a team-leading .456 on-base percentage while batting primarily out of the leadoff spot. Pritchett led the team with 44 runs scored and 36 stolen bases this season, and her 33 walks also led all Eagles in 2016."

Pritchett's contributions helped lead Avila to 35 victories, the most in program history.

Pritchett, a 2013 graduate of Nevada High School, was a member of the Lady Tigers 2010 Class 3 State Championship softball team.
