Former Raider softball star earns national player of the week honors
Former Northwest Florida State College student athlete Hannah Day has had a spring to remember. The Crestview native and former Raider softball star, now a senior at Troy University, had a record-breaking week for the Trojans in March that earned her national player of the week honors from both the National Fastpitch Coaches Association and USA Softball.
According to the Troy University Athletics website, Day hit .812 (13-for-16) with 20 RBIs, six home runs and three doubles, and scored 12 runs over a four-game stretch in mid-March to become the first player in Troy history to be named national player of the week. During the second game of a series at Appalachian State, she went 5-for-5 with three home runs, two doubles and nine RBIs, tying the NCAA record for total bases in a game with 16 and setting or tying Troy single-game records for home runs and RBIs.
Day, who competed for the Raiders for two years after graduating from Crestview High School in 2012, holds single-season records at NWF State College for batting average, RBIs, total bases and hits, set during her sophomore campaign in 2014.
