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. For the second straight season, the Lady Bobcats won the MACJC title, went 2-2 in the NJCAA Division II National Tournament and finished second in Region 23.

Buller pitched 163 innings, allowed 108 hits, allowed 38 earned runs, walked 27 and struck out 130. She had a 1.63 earned run average.

Buller was named the MACJC Pitcher of the Week for the weeks of Feb. 25-March and March 18-24. She was the NJCAA Division II National Pitcher of the Week for the week of Feb. 25-March 3.

In 2012, Lady Bobcat pitcher Ginger Lonergan and centerfielder Relanda McFarland were named first-team All-Americans. Lonergan was a third-team All-American in 2011.
