The NFCA released its All-America teams on Wednesday, and the Big Ten was well-represented with six student-athletes garnering recognition, including a pair of First-Team All-Americans.

Michigan shortstop Sierra Romero and Nebraska catcher Taylor Edwards both collected First-Team All-America plaudits. Minnesota pitcher Sara Moulton and third baseman Kaitlyn Richardson were named Second-Team All-Americans, along with Michigan hurler Haylie Wagner, who was named to the team as an at-large selection. Nebraska pitcher/utility player Tatum Edwards collected Third-Team All-America honors.

All six players guided their teams to deep NCAA Tournament runs, as Michigan, Minnesota and Nebraska advanced to the NCAA Super Regional round. It marked the first time in conference history that the Big Ten sent three teams to Super Regionals.
