Napier powers Coastal Christian to softball win

Coastal Christian softball standout Grace Napier couldn’t have asked for a better day.

The Conquerors third baseman turned a triple play on defense, but it was her offensive output that had coach Christine Garrison talking.

Napier finished 4 for 4 with three home runs and 11 RBI in Coastal Christian’s 18-6 win over Shandon on Friday.

“She had a great game,” Garrison said. “She was just on today.”

Napier hit a grand slam and two three-run homers. She also had a double and a sacrifice fly that drove in a run.

Napier also turned a triple play after she caught a liner, tagged out an advancing runner and threw out another runner returning to first base.

“With all the offensive excitement I almost forgot about the triple play,” Garrison said.
