Foxboro senior Hannah Davis has been selected as the Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for June 3 through June 9. Davis is the 32nd player selected for the 2017-18 school year and the ninth player chosen during the spring season.

In the same week that she was selected as a co-MVP by the Hockomock League coaches, Davis recorded eight hits over two state tournament games to lead Foxboro, which is the No. 23 seed in Div. 2 South, into the sectional quarterfinal to face No. 2 Plymouth South on Monday. A four-year standout for the Warriors, Davis is the team’s leading hitter this season and a reason that Foxboro had confidence in going on the road and making a postseason run.

“I can’t say enough about her,” Foxboro coach Mark Maguire said. “Hannah’s the heart and soul of the team, she sets the tempo for us. She comes up with great plays, great throws. She’s really in touch with what’s going on during the game. She is such a great leader for us and has been for the last four years.”

In the preliminary round of the tournament at No. 10 Holliston, Davis went 4-for-4 with a stolen base and scored four times, as the Warriors won 6-3. She reached base in all five plate appearances on Saturday against No. 7 Bristol-Plymouth, going 4-for-5 with a triple, driving in a pair of runs, stealing a base, and again scoring four times. During the regular season, Davis was third in the league with a .508 average and drove in 20 runs for the Warriors.

The Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, is selected by the staff. Nominations can be submitted throughout the week up until Saturday night at midnight. There may be a poll posted on every Sunday with the nominations. The results of the poll influence the selection but do not strictly dictate the decision.
