Hannah DeLuna (ERU)

Hannah DeLuna turned in a stellar performance last week to guide Embry-Riddle to a 2-2 split with Arizona Christian. The freshman outfielder compiled six hits in 14 plate appearances, including two home runs, two doubles and nine runs batted in. Her power output put her at the top of the ERAU run producers with 24 RBI this spring, and her four home runs place her second on the squad. For the season, the Salpointe graduate is batting .340.
