Flagler's Collings Named National Softball Player of the Week

STARKVILLE, Miss. – Flagler College senior first baseman Breezy Collings has been named as the Louisville Slugger Division II National Player of the Week for games played Feb. 13-19.

She is the first Flagler softball player to be selected as the national player of the week.

Collings batted a team-high .692, with nine hits, two doubles, and three home runs, as well as 10 runs batted in, and scored four runs to help lead the Saints to a 4-0 week. She was selected as the Peach Belt Conference’s Player of the Week. Collings also led the team with a 1.538 slugging percentage as well as a .643 on-base percentage.

She hit two doubles and a home run, just one total base away from tying another school record. In the first game against Webber International on Saturday, it was her two-run home run in the bottom of the seventh inning that lifted the Saints to victory.
