Van Buren, senior, 2017 winner
Shockley, a three-time SBA softball finalist, was a difference-maker on both sides of the ball for the fall-season Class 1 state-champion Bulldogs. She hit .564 on the year with 44 RBIs, 35 runs scored, a .982 slugging percentage, 14 doubles, five triples and five home runs. In the pitcher’s circle, Shockley went 16-5 with awe-inspiring stats: a 0.39 ERA and 226 strikeouts. She threw back-to-back no-hitters in the sectional and quarterfinal rounds of the postseason and threw four no-hitters on the season.
