Benedictine University freshman firstbaseman Cassie Cappetto (Oak Lawn, Ill./Marist H.S.) has added another honor to her already burgeoning list of accolades for her first collegiate season. Cappetto was named to the Second Team All-Great Lakes Region by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association. The all-region honor comes just one day after Cappetto was named First Team All-Northern Athletics Conference (NAC), selected to the NAC's All-Rookie Team and named the league's "Rookie of the Year." In 2008, Cappetto hit .459 with 62 hits and 41 RBI, with all three totals ranking as the third-best among NAC players. She also led the circuit in doubles (15), while belting three triples and four homeruns on her way to a team-leading .704 slugging percentage and an on-base average of .507. Cappetto was also a top defensive player with a .991 fielding percentage in 329 total chances.
