Crestview's Day shines for Raiders

Published: Tuesday, April 2, 2013 at 11:25 PM.

Day said the biggest adjustments have been in learning how to call the game as the catcher, being selective with the pitches she wants to hit and avoiding stress in tough situations.

Byerly said there's no great secret to Day's success.

"She works hard," he said. "She comes in there and takes extra hitting. She catches everybody in the bullpen.

"She just works. If you can find anybody that works harder than that — holy smokes."

Day said she would consider leaving Northwest Florida State at the end of the season if a beneficial softball opportunity at a four-year school was available.

However,  right now, she's sees herself in a win-win situation.

"I'm just looking to see what's out there," Day said. "If I have to stay here another year and get myself out there even more, I will. But I love playing here and I can't wait to move on to the next level."
