Red Elephants News · ATHLETE OF THE MONTH FEATURE: Emma Phillips


GAINESVILLE – Red Elephant senior softball player Emma Phillips made the most of her last month playing for Gainesville.

Phillips, who has committed to playing softball for Emmanuel College post-graduation, had a .481 on-base percentage while batting .391 for Big Red. In the field, she was just as consistent with a .967 field percentage and only one error in 11 September games.

For her efforts, Phillips was voted the Big Red September Athlete of the Month.

“Emma (Phillips) has been an integral part of our team all year,” said coach Kiara Nelson, coming off her first year at the helm of the Gainesville softball program. “She anchored our defense behind the plate and came up with some huge hits for us. I am excited to see her continue her success at Emmanuel next year.”
