PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla (WJHG/WECP) - There's some very nice recognition for Arnold softball player Ashley Troutman Tuesday.
Arnold Athletic Director and softball head coach Rick Green telling us Tuesday Arnold junior shortstop Ashley Troutman, number three in the video attached, has been named the Florida Dairy Farmers 6A Player of the Year.
This award voted on by high school coaches across the state. Ashley made the voting easy, hitting an astounding .678 this season with 4 homers and 34 rbi.
Troutman's one of nine players now eligible to be named the State Player of the Year, since that comes from the winners in each of the nine classes of softball in Florida.
That award will be announced later this month. Congrats to Ashley!
