Softball Players Make Regional Teams
For the second straight year, Western Nevada College outfielder Jennifer Quam was selected to the first team for Region 18 softball.
The sophomore from North Valleys High School in Reno became the first WNC player to make the first team in the program’s history the previous year.
Also during Wednesday’s selections at the region tournament in Twin Falls, Idaho, Wildcat freshman Sydney Darby (Spanish Springs High) was chosen to the second team.
Quam, the Wildcats’ leadoff hitter, batted .300 with six doubles and a homer in 57 games. She led the Wildcats with 42 runs scored and 48 stolen bases in 55 attempts.
Darby topped the Wildcats with a .356 batting average during the regular season and has set a program record with 17 home runs. The catcher also led the Wildcats with 52 RBI and a .684 slugging average.
College of Southern Idaho’s Lea Hopson was named the region’s player of the year, while Salt Lake’s MaCauley Flint was chosen as pitcher of the year.
