Michigan's Sierra Romero named Collegiate Player of the Year

B1G FEATURE - Get to know Sierra Romero, one of the best softball players in Michigan history who will be the first person from her family to graduate from college.

Michigan senior Sierra Romero has another award to add to her impressive resume: USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year.

Romero was honored with the award Tuesday night in Oklahoma City. She became the first national player of the year in program history.

The Wolverines’ star second baseman is batting .465 with 72 hits, 19 home runs, 78 RBIs and 74 runs scored in 56 games this season.

Romero beat out Auburn’s Kasey Cooper and Florida’s Aleshia Ocasio for the award.

Romero and the No. 2-seeded Wolverines open play in the Women’s College World Series at 9:30 p.m. ET on Thursday against No. 10 LSU.

Well done, Sierra!
