Louisville softball supporting baseball

Happy Friday! We have reached the end of another workweek and boy has it been a busy one... at least for me. Daryl had another late night with the Louisville Bats so I'm standing in for her this morning.

With summer break swiftly approaching, our news and notes regarding Louisville women's athletes has slowed quite a bit. We do still see some news here and there, which softball had some of this week.

While Louisville softball's season has come to a close, a couple individual players received accolades. Daisy Hess and Riley Frizell were named to the All-ACC Third Team, as voted on by the league coaches.

Riley Frizell

Frizell, a transfer from Missouri, led the Cardinals in multiple categories. Her .337 batting average, .651 slugging percentage, 49 rbis, and 13 home runs were team highs. She ranks eighth in program history for home runs in a season. She reached base safely in 45 of the 52 games this year. 

Hess spent the last two seasons at Louisville after transferring in from Georgia State. The shortstop earned her second straight All-ACC honors. This season, she rotated through the top batting order spots in the lineup but found herself in the leadoff position more times than not. The fifth-year student-athlete led the team with 37 runs scored, 12 doubles, 34 walks, and a .456 on-base percentage. The 34 walks is fifth in program history in a single season. Hess reached safely in 45 of her 49 games played.

Daisy Hess

We wish both Frizell and Hess congratulations on their accomplishments and wish them the best of luck in the next steps of their careers and journeys through life!

Happy Friday and Go Cards!
