Macy Coleman, a freshman at Armstrong State in Savannah, GA, has helped lead the Pirates to post-season play in the Division II Softball Championships this season with her stellar play defensively in the infield and especially with the bat.
A native of Hazlehurst, GA, Macy is a 2015 graduate of Jeff Davis High School where she was a three-time region 2-AA Player of the Year, as well as a three-time All-State honoree for the Yellowjackets. She broke the Jeff Davis High School single-season home run record with 14 as a junior. In addition to her dynamic play in softball, Coleman was also a two-time All-Region golfer.
She’s helped the Pirates reach a mark of 40-14 this season, including 19-5 in conference play. Through 54 games, all of which she has started, Macy is hitting .277 with 10 homers and 40 RBI as she is one of three players on the team with at least 10 home runs and 40 driven in. Coleman has 82 total bases, good for third on the team and she’s scored 28 runs. She’s been even better in conference play, hitting .370 with six of her 10 homers coming during Peach Belt Conference action.
Defensively, Macy has committed only four errors and has turned 11 double plays with 55 putouts and a .978% fielding percentage this season.
We saw Macy at high-level Under Armour Softball Factory showcase tournaments, attending the 2014 and 2015 Under Armour Softball Factory Summer Showcases as well as the Fall Showcase in November of 2014 and the Winter Classic in January of 2015.
Softball Factory National Showcase Director, Ty Rietkovich saw the skills and competitiveness from Macy and knew big things were to come at the next level.
“Macy was a versatile player who really played when people were watching. In the showcases she was one that just attracted the attention of the coaches because of the way she carried herself on the field and the intensity in which she played. Her approach at the plate made her a player to watch and she never seemed to have a bad at-bat.”
We look forward to even bigger things from Macy during the postseason and wish her and the team much success!
