BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Junior outfielder Hayley Davis of the softball team is the UAB Student-Athlete of the Week, as announced on Wednesday. The UAB Student-Athlete of the Week recognizes Blazer student-athletes who excel on and off their respective fields of completion.
Davis has started 10 of the past 11 games in left field for the UAB softball team. The Tarpon Springs, Fla. Native has 11 hits on the season and is one of two Blazers to have a triple on the year. In the squad’s win at Mississippi State, Davis clubbed two doubles to lead the team to a 5-3 victory over the then-unbeaten Bulldogs.
