Athlete of the Week: Hoke softball’s McKenzie Freeman

McKenzie Freeman, a rising sophomore catcher on the Hoke County softball team, is the Athlete of the Week.

Freeman won Athlete of the Week once during the regular season, as the Bucks posted an 11-11 record.

There was no AOTW jinx, as she kept up her strong play after being honored. She led the Bucks with 29 hits and seven doubles and was second on the team with a .358 average. Her .955 fielding, 20 runs, 18 RBIs and .469 slugging were also second on the team.

Her outstanding season earned her another honor, when the North Carolina Softball Coaches Association named her to the all-district team for District 4.
