LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The MaxPreps/National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) High School Player of the Week award returns with high school fall softball seasons now underway.
As a result of her outstanding efforts during games played during the period August 25-31, the NFCA has selected senior Ally Power of Ponderosa High School in Parker, Colo., as the MaxPreps/NFCA National High School Player of the Week for September 1.
Power went 5-1 in the circle with six complete games, 67 strikeouts and just two walks, plus 17 hits and seven runs allowed over 36 innings pitched. She allowed just three earned runs in the six games to compile a 0.58 earned-run average. Meanwhile, the senior pitcher and utility player hit .421 with three doubles, a home run and nine runs batted in at the plate.
