Kentucky softball senior pitcher Kelsey Nunley has been named as a finalist for USA Softball’s Collegiate Player of the Year.

Nunley is among just 25 players included in the elite group, which is considered the most prestigious in Division I softball. The honor is on the heels of what has become an outstanding season for Nunley, who has a 15-4 overall record in 2016 and leads the Kentucky staff with more than 120 strikeouts.

The Player of the Year award will be announced on May 31 prior to the Women’s College World Series in Oklahoma City.

Nunley is also a finalist for the 2016 Senior CLASS Award. Fans can go online and vote for Nunley every day through the end of the regular season.
