Four Nighthawks and National Park College head women's coach Marvin Moody Sr. picked up postseason honors earlier this month as the two teams wrapped up their first season as part of the National Junior College Athletics Association.
Freshman Patrick Greene, sophomore Braylon Steen and sophomores Bailey Womack and Faith Bratton were named to the 2019 NJCAA Region II Division II All-Region Team, and Moody was named the All-Region Coach of the Year for his efforts with the team. Moody, in his first year at the helm of the Nighthawk women's team, led the Nighthawks to a record of 4-13.

Steen, of Bryant, was named to the second team with an average of 11 points per game. He also led the team in rebounds and steals, pulling down 9.3 boards per game and tallying 1.5 takeaways per game.
Womack, a Fountain Lake grad, was named to the first team. She led the Nighthawks with 16.4 points per game while dishing out 4.5 assists per game while forcing 1.6 steals, leading the team in both categories. She also shot 32.5 percent from 3-point range and 77.1 percent from the line.
