In June, she recorded a .419 batting average in 31 at-bats. Boulaphinh posted an OBP of .455, an OPS. of 1.229, and a slugging percentage of .774.
“Sydney is an extremely hard working player,” coach Pablo Severtson said. “Sydney is a great teammate and her softball IQ is extremely high. I’m looking forward to how good she’s going to become.”
Boulaphinh collected 11 RBI, eight singles, two doubles, and three home runs. She also stole three bases.
“I grew up spending many weekends at my brother’s baseball tournaments, playing wiffle ball with him and his friends,” she said. “When I was 12, I decided I wanted to try softball. Once I was able to step on the field myself, I immediately fell in love with the sport.”
She hasn’t looked back yet. The Colorado Styxx 18U Gold earned a Tier I berth to the Alliance Fastpitch Championship Series.
In the future, Boulaphinh hopes to continue her softball and educational career at a big school with strong academics.
From all of us at the Alliance and the RMFL, congratulations to Sydney Boulaphinh for her achievements.
What is the Alliance Fastpitch Player Recognition Program?
The Player Recognition Program was built to recognize and spotlight our individual players in each Member League. Each month, registered Alliance Fastpitch coaches can nominate a player from their age division. League Leadership will review nominations and a monthly stats report from AthletesGoLive (AGL) to determine the League’s Player of the Month.
Following the announcement of each League’s Players of the Month, the Alliance Fastpitch will recognize a National Player of the Month.
To be considered for Player of the Month, your team must score League games in AGL so your stats will be included in the League’s monthly report.
