Athlete of the Week: Sophia Crist

North Stanly softball’s Sophia Crist is the Athlete of the Week.

The Comets are 12-1 on the season, 5-0 atop the Yadkin Valley Conference. They went 2-0 last week, and Crist picked up both victories on the mound with dominating performances. In a 3-0 home win over Gray Stone Day, she pitched all seven innings, allowing just one hit and striking out 15 of the 22 batters she faced.

Three days earlier, in a 6-0 shutout at Gray Stone, she did even better than that, going seven innings and retiring all 21 batters she faced for a perfect game. Crist struck out 11 in the game.

She also went 3-for-5 at the plate, with three runs and an RBI in the two games.
