This week’s feature is on former Butler softball star Hailey Whitmer who is now playing for Northern Kentucky University.

Former Butler softball star Hailey Whitmer made noise as a pitcher and slugger at the high school level.

Now, she’s making noise as a Norse at Northern Kentucky University.

Whitmer played in 43 games, making 38 starts between first base and the designated player as a freshman.

She batted .245 with 24 hits and 11 RBI. Whitmer clubbed six doubles and had her first career home run, her only homer as a freshman, to lift NKU to a road win at Cleveland State.

The former Bearette also had four multi-hit games and two multi-RBI games, and posted a four-game hitting streak.
