Vote for Flynn, Donahey for Week 5 Player of Week

Gators, it’s time to vote!

Your candidates for Week 5 Softball Player of the Week for the media outlet are freshmen Riley Flynn and Bridget Donahey. Both were instrumental in Xavier’s 3-1 record this week.

Flynn posted a 3-0 record as a pitcher, including a no-hitter against a tough-hitting Chandler Hamilton team. She also hit a home run for the only run of the game that day at Hamilton (Wednesday) in a 1-0 victory. On Tuesday, she also hit a home run in a win over Mesa Mountain View at Xavier.

The Gators completed their busy week with a 9-3 road win over Phoenix Desert Vista. Flynn got the win, and Donahey went 4-for-4, including two home runs and two doubles, driving in five runs.

Voters can make their selections by going to and clicking on “high schools.’’ Voting ends at noon on Wednesday (March 27).
