Did You Know?

The name Haley Fagan is well-known in SEC circles. For many, their first thought be of the former South Alabama Jaguar and current Auburn Tiger slugger. The youngest of a trio of sisters that have starred across the SEC spectrum the last several years, Haley Fagan transferred to Auburn prior to the 2015 season and cemented her place square in the middle of the powerful Tiger lineup, hitting .347 with thirteen home runs and a .598 slugging percentage. She tore her ACL last fall and has been out all season following surgery, but will return as a redshirt senior in 2017.

Did you know that there is more than one Haley Fagan in the softball world? A part of the 2013 freshman class at the University of Tennessee, the "other Haley Fagan", a pitcher, spent one season at UT before eventually winding up at Trevecca Nazarene University, a Division 2 school. On the season, her senior year, Fagan has posted a 2.30 ERA with 275 strikeouts in 282 innings pitched. Opponents hit just .199 against her. Earlier this week, in a regional-opening game against #2-ranked Indianapolis and future pro pitcher Morgan Foley, Fagan pitched a full nine innings, allowing just four hits and one run en route to collecting the upset victory.
