WALTHAM, Mass. – Bentley University softball catcher Ella Hillier (Tualitin, Ore./Tualitin HS) has been named to the All-Northeast-10 Conference third team following her outstanding season this spring for the Falcons. Hillier was also selected for the conference's All-Rookie Team.

A starter in all but one game for the Falcons, Hillier was third on the team in hitting with a .293 average. She led the team in doubles (12), RBI (28) and total bases (56), and was also second in hits (39). Hillier made 35 starts behind the plate, five as the designated player and one at first base.

Hillier's 28 RBI was the most by a Bentley player since 2008 and tied for third in program history. Her 12 doubles included an NE10-high nine in conference action and was one away from the school record.

Bentley finished the season at 18-24 overall and 10-11 in the NE10's Northeast Division.
