Montana's Ashlyn Lyons (13) catches a ball at first base in 2017.

MISSOULA — After concluding her senior season, Montana softball's Ashlyn Lyons was selected in the 2018 American Softball Association (ASBA) draft. 

The E1 Pro Ballers drafted Lyons with the No. 64 overall pick. 

The ASBA is a new, four-team league and was founded in 2018. The inaugural summer season runs from June 14 to August 1. All ASBA teams are located in the Mobile, Alabama, area. 

Lyons, a native of Walla Walla, Washington, earned All-Big Sky honors in all four years of her collegiate career, including second-team honors for her senior season.

The first baseman had a .341 batting average this season, a mark that was second on the team behind Delene Colburn. In Lyons' 170 at bats this year, she had 58 hits, 12 of which were doubles. She added a single and seven home runs in 2018 as well. 

On defense, Lyons had a team-high 319 putouts and had a team-high .991 fielding percentage. She only committed three errors last season. 

Lyons graduated from the university with her Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies in May.
