ELLISVILLE – Jones County Junior College pitcher Samantha Buller has received another postseason honor.

Buller, a freshman from Iowa, La., has been named an NJCAA Division II third-team All-American. The list of All-Americans was released Thursday afternoon.

Buller, who was named All-Region 23 earlier this month, finished the season with a 26-5 record and helped the Lady Bobcats to a 44-10 overall record.
