Hailey Peloquin’s dual threat ability pushes her to ASA/USA JO Player of the Week honors

OKLAHOMA CITY — Hailey Peloquin’s (Woonsocket, R.I.) dominance on the mound this past week has landed her the Week 2 ASA/USA Junior Olympic (JO) Player of the Week honors, presented by Worth Fastpitch and www.FloSoftball.com. Announced today by the Amateur Softball Association (ASA)/USA Softball, Peloquin pitched 22 innings for the RI Thunder Gold, piling up four wins in as many appearances while racking up 45 strikeouts at the Think Pink Tournament this past weekend in Tewksbury, Ma.

“Hailey has matured a lot as a player, which it has been a pleasure to see,” said RI Thunder Gold’s head coach and Peloquin’s father, Brian Peloquin. “From a father standpoint, I have been able to see improvement from being able to work indoors and practice as much as possible. Hailey has hopes of earning a college scholarship.”

Along with her pitching, Peloquin was also a standout at the plate. With a batting average of .680 in 25 at bats, she brought home five RBI on 12 hits. Peloquin also showed off her base running abilities this past weekend, scoring 14 times.
