1. (--): Dillon Moore, C/P, Nash Central: Moore struck out 10 batters in six innings in a loss to Northern Nash on Tuesday but will likely finish the season with a batting average north of .450.

1. (--) Lesley Murray, LF, Nash Central: After picking up a hit in all but one game this season, Murray should finish the year with a batting average well into the .400s. She’s a threat to drive in runs, even if the bases are empty.

3. (NR) Jessica Ricks, CF, Northern Nash: Ricks went 3-for-4 on Tuesday night, but has been one of the better outfielders in the area this season – both at the plate and in the grass.
