2018 NAIA Softball Player of the Year

@SOURaiders @SOU_Softball @Foofers13 #NAIASBWorldSeries #PlayNAIA #CollegeSoftball @Kelsee_R

A well-deserved honor was bestowed on Harlee Donovan as she was named the (first-ever from SOU) national player of the year. Besides her gold-glove defense at catcher, she was by far the most feared hitter in the NAIA. This is evidenced by her 62 walks, more than 20 as many as anyone in the NAIA. By way of comparison, her OPS of 1.364 is more than 200 points higher than Babe Ruth’s 1.164–the highest in MLB history. The leader in OPS this year in MLB is Mookie Betts at 1.187.

Kelsey Randall was an All-American for the second year in a row. She came in third in the NAIA in walks (with 40), was first in triples, first in runs scored, and second in stolen bases. On defense she was also first in assists and won four gold gloves as a Raider. She is the all-time record holder in the NAIA in triples.

2018 Southern Oregon University Softball Team

Almost five months ago, the 2018 NAIA softball pre-season poll came out. The Raiders were picked to come in third. After the preseason poll SOU was never ranked higher than #8, until now. They will finish their most successful season ever at their preseason rank of #3 after eliminating the #21, #9, #3, and #2 ranked teams in the World Series. Nice job!

Final Four!

With the #1, #3, and #5 seeds eliminated, #6 SOU will go to work on the #2 seed (defending champion Oklahoma City) someday (there have been numerous delays). You can watch the game at Oaktree (21+) or Northwest Pizza (all ages) whenever it does begin. Another Raider victory will mean another game a half hour later (weather permitting). Southern Oregon still needs four more wins to win it all. They are currently on a three-game winning streak.

One week from today begins the 2018 NAIA Softball World Series. The Raiders will meet archnemesis Marian in the first game. (SOU beat Marian for the National Championship in football in 2014. Since then Southern Oregon is 0-3 with a football loss in 2015, a women’s basketball loss in 2016, and a softball loss in 2016.) It’s payback time!

I’m guessing the Raiders will be the only team there with at least four freshmen in their starting lineup. Those four freshmen have played amazing defense and hit a combined .351 this year.
