02.16.2017 | By Amanda Fenwick
The Angleton, Texas native (Angleton HS) helped San Jac go 4-1 last week, bringing the overall record for the country’s ninth-ranked team to 9-5. Damion hit .611 in 18 at-bats including one homerun and two doubles with 11 hits. She scored seven runs and drove in seven runs, and had one stolen base.
“I was happy to see the region recognize Dani for her play on the field this past week,” said San Jacinto College Softball Head Coach Kelly Saenz, now in her 14th season at the helm of the program. “She was a key player in all aspects of our game, and this honor is well deserved.”
This was the second-straight Region XIV player of the week honor for San Jacinto College. Last week second-baseman Missy Hernandez took home the honor.
San Jac heads to Temple this weekend for the Temple Tournament before coming home on Feb. 22 to face McLennan Community College in two games beginning at 1 p.m. All San Jacinto College softball home games are played on the softball field on the South Campus.
