Hannah Mercer (’17), a shortstop on the IUP softball team, earned several well-deserved accolades both academically and athletically during the spring 2017 semester.

On the softball field, Hannah set the IUP career records for at-bats, hits, total bases, and runs in addition to being recognized as IUP Athlete of the Week three times and being named PSAC Central Division Softball Athlete of the Week. Hannah’s distinguished collegiate softball career places her among the best players in IUP softball history.

Shortly after being selected as IUP’s 2016–17 Women’s Scholar-Athlete of the Year, Hannah was chosen by the College Sports Information Directors of America for the Academic All-District Softball Team for the second consecutive year. Subsequently, Hannah was named to the CoSIDA Academic All-America Division II Softball Second Team. These honors rank Hannah among the top student-athletes in the nation and reflect her combined accomplishments athletically and academically.

Congratulations, Hannah!
