Eversley, Hyland named top Cal Poly athletes of the year

Men’s basketball player Chris Eversley and softball star Sierra Hyland have been named Cal Poly’s Male and Female Athletes of the Year, respectively, in a ceremony late Wednesday night.

Eversley, a senior, led the Mustangs on an improbable postseason run that saw Cal Poly win the Big West Conference Tournament and advance to the NCAA Tournament for the first time at the Division I level.

Hyland, a pitching and hitting star, is the second straight freshman to win Female Athlete of the Year.
