#25 Joley Mitchell
AS A FRESHMAN (2020)
In the first tournament of the season, Mitchell posted a .600 batting average over five games, including three runs and six hits (with a double) in 10 at-bats. She was walked seven times, including one intentional walk. Mitchell totaled eight bases (.800 slugging percentage), and stole four bases in as many attempts. On defense, Mitchell forced five putouts and seven assists, starting all five games at third base. A freshman, Mitchell leads Irish starters in batting average and walks. She was intentionally walked against No. 21 Ole Miss, which loaded the bases and set up two Notre Dame scores with the next batter. Mitchell then scored what proved to be the deciding run of the contest on the next play, a groundout. Mitchell batted as the leadoff hitter in one contest for the weekend.
