HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. - Northern Kentucky University softball players Sarah King and Ricki Rothbauer have earned NCAA Division II All-America honors from the National Fastpitch Coaches Association.

King, a sophomore catcher and a graduate of Male High School in Louisville, Ky., was named first team All-American by the NFCA. King led NKU with a .385 batting average this season. She also drove in a team-leading 46 runs and tied a Norse single-season record with six home runs.

King also led NKU with 15 doubles and a .592 slugging percentage.

Rothbauer, a senior second baseman and also a native of Louisville, was selected third team All-American. She batted .379 with a team-leading 80 hits this season.

Rothbauer also collected 10 doubles and scored a team-leading 46 runs this season. A graduate of DuPont Manual High School, Rothbauer finished No. 3 in Norse history with 234 career hits.

NKU posted a 41-21 record this spring and advanced to the NCAA Division II Tournament for the fifth consecutive season.
