Hill named Alaska Sports Hall of Fame Athlete of the Week
Anchorage’s Morgan Hill was named our Alaska Athlete of the Week for her performance off the field of play.
Now that her college softball career at the University of Missouri-St. Louis has ended, the former East High standout will continue to play a starring role in the next chapter of her life.
The 23-year-old next month will graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree and is eager to begin a career on the front lines in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.
“Somebody asked me if I was scared and I said, ‘No, I’m not worried. Bring it,’” Hill said. “I think that’s the athlete in me. My competitive side wants to get in there and help.”
Hill helped the NCAA D3 Tritons post a 124-70 record over her four seasons with the program. They won two Great Lakes Valley Conference titles and made three NCAA Tournament appearances.
The athlete of the week recipient is selected by a panel each Friday and announced Saturday at 11 a.m. on the Sports Guys on CBS Sports Radio 590AM and 96.7FM.
