NWAC PLAYERS OF THE WEEK - APRIL 11
Hailey Danly, Prairie HS / Cottonwood, ID., was 5 for 8 at the plate with 4 runs, a double and three home runs driving in 7 RBIs to lead the sixth-ranked Warriors to a pair of wins over Big Bend. With her three homers, Danly has risen to 5th place on the HR leaderboard with 10 on the season.
“Hailey had a very impressive series last week," said WWCC head coach Justin Speer. "She has been a huge impact player for us in her 2 years here. On top of having a phenomenal sophomore year, Hailey is a hard working tough minded kid that has really put a lot of hard work in. She has stepped up for us as a sophomore leader and really works to push our team and herself this season. This is much deserved... we couldn’t be more proud of her.”
