DP | Taylor Hoelscher, Papillion-La Vista
Year: Senior | College: Missouri Western
Stat that jumps out: In 128 plate appearances, Hoelscher struck out only five times.
Impact: Not many players were as steady as Hoelscher this season. She hit .433 with 27 RBIs, 33 runs, seven doubles and nine stolen bases, while also providing a reliable glove in right field. Batting second in the lineup most of the year, Hoelscher could provide a big hit or move over the lead runner. Her coach, Todd Petersen, also praised Hoelscher for her leadership.
Coach's take: "Consistency is really the word that follows her. We could always rely on her to put the ball in play, move the runner if we had to as well as get the big hit if we needed it. She's probably the person on our team if you said, 'OK, you get to pick who you have in the situation, I would think I'd pick her in a lot of situations." — Papillion-La Vista coach Todd Petersen
