WINGATE, N.C. – Barton College freshman outside hitter Kaytlin Elkins has been named to the 2017 D2CCA All-Southeast Region Second Team, officials announced Tuesday morning. Voting for the D2CCA All-Region teams was conducted by the region's sports information directors.

Elkins garnered Conference Carolinas Freshman of the Year accolades while also earning first team all-conference honors, leading the Lady Bulldogs to the conference regular season and tournament championships.

The Hope Mills, N.C. native leads the league and the region with 4.41 kills per set, adding 2.10 digs per set while also ranking in the top 10 in the conference in aces.

Elkins was joined on the second team by Conference Carolinas 2017 Player of the Year Paige O'Connor from Southern Wesleyan.
