Callan Taylor has been named the Gulf South Conference Player of the Week for the first time in her University of West Florida softball career.
The sophomore standout from Navarre earned the honor after dominating at the plate over the weekend in a series against Alabama Huntsville. Taylor finished the three-game series with six hits, including two home runs, and she also drove in seven runs to push her team-leading RBI total to 18.
Taylor finished the weekend with at least one extra-base hit and one RBI in every game of the series. The Argonauts lost two of three to the Chargers, closing the series out with a 7-6 win Sunday.
A year after helping the Argonauts advance to the College World Series, Taylor is picking up momentum in her second season with the team. She’s hitting .328 overall and owns a .444 batting average in the month of March. She’s had at least one RBI in each of her last seven games and has racked up 16 hits this month after tallying only three in February.
The Argos are 18-11 overall and 9-7 in the Gulf South Conference. They were ranked 16th in the country in NCAA Division II in last week’s poll. They play three games at home this weekend against West Georgia, starting with a doubleheader at 3 p.m. Friday.
