I wanted to write a quick note about Sierra Hyland. I haven’t covered Cal Poly softball this season like I wanted to, and Hyland’s senior campaign has been really good. She’s set the Big West mark for strikeouts and player of the week honors and I would think there’s a good argument that she’s the conference’s all-time best player. 

Today, Hyland was drafted fourth by the Chicago Bandits of National Pro Fastpitch.

The Bandits have won the league twice in a row and Hyland is the first Cal Poly player to be drafted. It’s just another accolade given to the most decorated player in Cal Poly history. 

After starting the season red-hot, Cal Poly is just 5-7 in Big West play this year.
