As a top-3 finalist for the ASAUSA National Player of the Year, Chelsea was about as close as any Missouri Student Athlete has ever come to being named their sport's National Player Of The Year (as far as I can tell). But, alas, she did not win, the winner, instead, is Stanford Jr. Ashley Hansen.
Ashley Hansen - 2B Junior from Chandler AZ. #15 Stanford lost 2 games to 1 against Alabama in the Tuscaloosa Super Regional.
Hansen's line from this season (bear in mind, this is in one of the two best conferences in the country)
GP: 59 (all of her team's games)
Avg: .495 in 192 AB , good for 3rd in the country. (2nd on team: .398)
Hits: 92 lead the nation
25 doubles lead the nation (2nd on team: 9)
9 HR (2nd best on team, best was 10)
45 RBI (2nd best on team, best was 49)
Total Bases 153 (2nd best on team: 104)
SLG: .797 (17th nationally) OB: .558 (8th Nationally) - OPS: 1.335
Fielding %: .959
So, I GUESS it was a decent choice.
