For the second year in a row, the Miss Softball Award for position players goes to a member of the Farmington Hills Mercy team.
Abby Krzywiecki received the honor at the end of an outstanding senior season in which she set a state record for home runs with 20.
Tom Calnen, president of the Michigan High School Softball Coaches Association, made the announcement Saturday in the wake of Mercy’s 4-0 win over Macomb Dakota in the Division 1 state final.
Alex Sobczak, a former Mercy standout who now plays for the University of Michigan, won the award last year.
“To be able to do it back-to back-with her, that’s unreal,” Krzywiecki said. “She’s one of my good friends. It’s great to have the award, but I think the win is better, truthfully.”
