Waits: Another award?
Waits was the first Tech player ever to be named as the Player of the Year in the WAC since the university joined the league in 2001.
Her average is the best of any of the candidates for the Hitter of the Year award, the next highest being the .429 mark compiled by outfielder Kirsten Shortridge of LSU and outfielder Karli Hubbard of the University of Louisiana-Lafayette.
“Her numbers speak for themselves,” said Tech coach Sarah Dawson.
“She had a great sophomore season and we were curious to see how she would respond this year.”
