Daily News Girls Athlete of the Week

Name: Izzy Mertes

School: Valencia

Sport: Softball

Year: Freshman

Noteworthy: Mertes is proving to be one of the area’s best freshman this spring, and is certainly in the running to be the Daily News Freshman of the Year if these performances continue. The freshman third baseman was 3 for 6 with two RBIs and two home runs in the Vikings’ two wins last week over Canyon and Hart High. Her potent bat also drew two intentional walks.

Mertes is batting .480 with a team-high 17 RBIs and four home runs this season. Valencia is 8-0.
