By Staff | Jul 22, 2009

Managing Editor David Swartz announced the Estherville Daily News Athletes of the Year during the softball banquet Monday at Thoreson Park.

This year, ELC seniors Taylar Jacobson and Maggie Asman are co-winners of the newspaper’s softball award.

Jacobson was the leadoff batter and also a team leader on and off the field.

She was second in batting average at .292 and drew 14 walks this season-second highest on the team- to improve her on-base percentage to .370.

Asman provided a steady presence at first base, committing only three errors and a fielding percentage of .987.

Asman finished the season with a .228 batting average, but she drew a team-high 16 walks and was hit by a pitch six times which improves her on base percentage to .396.
