Central College senior pitcher Libby Hysell has been named the N-C-A-A division-three softball player of the year.The Colfax native led the Dutch to a 41-5 record and the program’s fourth national championship last week in Salem, Virginia. This past season Hysell finished 17-0 and led the nation with an earned run average of zero-point-four-one. Central coach George Wares says Hysell has developed a lot over the years and it has been her dream to win a national championship. He says Hysell’s competetive nature helped during a grueling run through the national tournament. Wares says going through the losers bracket does wear on the team, but he says Hysell just remained tough and fought through it.
