FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – For the fourth time in her Razorback career, senior Devon Wallace has earned all-region honors with her Thursday’s selection to the 2015 NFCA All-South Region Third Team. With her latest recognition, Wallace is the first player in program history with four all-region certificates. The program has now collected 10 NFCA all-region honors over the past six years.
This marks the latest in a list of postseason awards for Wallace who was previously recognized as the 2015 SEC Co-Scholar Athlete of the Year and a member of the 2014-15 Capital One Academic All-District 6 First Team.
Among her highlights on the field in 2015, Wallace blasted her 44th career home run March 16 against Texas to break the program record in front of a national television audience on the SEC Network. During her senior campaign, Wallace led the team with a .354 batting average, seven home runs, 26 RBI and 37 runs scored. She also leaves the program tied for fourth in NCAA history with 235 career walks.
During her four-year career at Arkansas, Wallace has added her name throughout the program’s record book and will exit the program as the career leading in batting average (.357), slugging percentage (.671), on-base percentage (.557), runs scored (184), home runs (44), total bases (378) and walks (235).
The Double Oak, Texas, native earned her undergraduate degree in nursing in December 2014 with a 3.88 cumulative grade-point average and went on to pass her board exam in early 2015 to become a registered nurse. In addition to her standout collegiate accomplishments, Wallace became the first Razorback to be drafted by the National Pro Fastpitch league when she was taken by the Pennsylvania Rebellion with the 20th overall pick.
