Female Freshman of the Quarter

When the lead off hitter is on, the whole squad is on.

That was the case during softball’s 2010 campaign as freshman Elizabeth Santana was a leader for the Aggie offense, posting a .411 on base percentage and delivering 19 RBI.

The freshman from Fontana, Calif hit safely in 10 straight contests during UC Davis’ 10-game winning streak, going 6-for-8 during a doubleheader against Cal State Fullerton.

During that streak, she delivered 20 of her 56 total hits, helping her to a .341 batting average. Santana finished the season sixth in the Big West Conference for batting average.

Santana also finished the season with 31 runs, two homers and a conference leading 13 doubles.
