Humboldt State softball standout Izzy Starr has been named to the 2021 Schutt Sports/NFCA DII Player and Pitcher of the Year Top 30 list.

Starr is one of 30 student athletes from around the nation to be selected as finalists for this prestigious honor, with the winner set to be announced at the conclusion of the 2021 season.

The HSU sophomore batted .468 in 14 games this spring, posting a .957 slugging percentage and a .468 on-base percentage. 

She has hit safely in 11 of HSU’s 14 games while only striking out once in 47 at-bats. 

Starr also leads the team with six home runs, while driving in 15 runs and scoring 13 runs. 

Of her 22 hits, six are home runs, three doubles and one a triple.

The award was created in 2015 to honor the outstanding achievements among softball student athletes throughout NCAA Division II. 

In 2019, the Association expanded the award to include a Player and Pitcher of the Year. 

To be eligible, student athletes must be nominated by their head coach. 

The Top 10 finalists will be announced on May 18.
