HockomockSports.Com: 2022 - Softball Awards recognize FHS' Fales

HOCKOMOCKSPORTS SECOND TEAM

Hailey Fales – Franklin – Catcher
Franklin junior Hailey Fales had a strong season for the Panthers, both offensively and defensively. At the dish, she batted 0.406 on the season with a 0.437 on-base percentage. She added nine RBI and stole three bases, and only struck out five times all season. “Hailey is a natural leader who commands the field from behind the plate,” said Franklin head coach Katie Holbrook. “She has great instincts, creates great rapport with the pitching staff, and is very effective calling the game. She put in a lot of work before the season offensively and it showed as she was the steady spot in our lineup that we needed.”
