FRESHMAN • CATCHER
Nicole Powers, Capital HS, Boise, ID.
Powers finished a short but productive week for Mt. Hood reaching base 5 out of her 6 at-bats (.833). During the double-header sweep of Chemeketa, Powers connected for 3 home runs while racking up 5 RBIs in the process for the third ranked Saints.
"Nicole has been an extremely consistent hitter for us this year," said Saint head coach Brittany Hendrickson. "She has started every game behind the plate for us this season and does a great job calling pitches and controlling our pitching staff. Nicole is also a great teammate and has a tremendous work ethic. I look forward to seeing all that she accomplishes during her time as a Saint!"
