Hutton named Defensive Player of the Year, McCorkhill receives All-MW honors

May 17, 2017

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Senior shortstop Haley Hutton was named the Mountain West Defensive Player of the Year and received First Team recognition, while junior first baseman Hannah McCorkhill was honored by the league for the first time with a Second Team All-MW nod, the league announced Wednesday.

Hutton is the first CSU player to be named the league’s Defensive Player of the Year, and is the first to win an individual honor since Kacie McCarthy was the MW Pitcher of the Year in 2012. The Platteville, Colo., native has now been named all-conference in all four years of her career, including two First Team selections (2016).

The shortstop led the league in defensive assists overall (135) and in league games only (68). She also batted .357 with a .455 on base percentage, on her way to setting CSU career records in batting average, runs scored and walks.

McCorkhill finished the season tied for third in the league in home runs (12) and fourth in runs batted in (45). McCorkhill’s home run total tied for the team lead with Amber Nelson, and was the most by a CSU player since 2008. Her RBI mark was the highest since 2008. McCorkhill finished the season with a .331 batting average and a .649 slugging mark.

The honor is the first of McCorkhill’s career. The Riverside, Calif., native had three career homers entering this season, then proceeded to hit four times as many in 2017 alone.
