Sami Feller Captures UAA Softball Honor

Sami Feller Captures UAA Softball Honor

Emory University junior Sami Feller (Coral Springs, FL) has been selected by the University Athletic Association as Softball Hitter of the Week following her performance over a four-game series at Case Western Reserve.  It is the second time this season and in her career that she has been selected for the award.  

Feller paced the squad with a blazing .688 effort at the plate, collecting a team-leading 11 hits in 16 at-bats. Included in her totals were a team-leading four doubles, one home run, a squad-best five RBIs and a slugging percentage of 1.125. She registered two or more hits in all four contests.  The Eagles took three of four games against the Spartans to move to 26-10 in overall play, 12-4 in UAA action.

After going 3-for-5 with one ribbie in the series opener, a 7-3 Emory triumph, Feller picked up two more hits and knocked in two runs in three plate appearances in a come-from-behind 9-7 verdict and a doubleheader sweep on the first day of action.  She drove in the team's first run of the game in the top of the sixth and helped continue an amazing eight-run frame in the top of the seventh, delivering a two-out single that narrowed Emory's deficit to 7-4. On Sunday, Feller turned in a 4-for-5 showing in the batter's box that included her first home run of the campaign, a solo shot in the top of the second that staked the Eagles to a 1-0 lead, in an eventual 10-7 win. In the series finale, she hit safely twice and accounted for Emory's initial tally of the game with a two-out two-bagger in the top of the first.

So far this year, Feller is hitting at a .370 clip (37-of-100) with 16 RBIs. She has chalked up a team-high 12 multi-hit games and has driven in two or more runs on three occasions.

Emory returns to action on Friday (Apr. 26) when it plays the first two of a four-game set at Brandeis University.
