Great Falls High had a number of accolades this softball season - including being the first undefeated team in AA history.
Now, the Bison have one more accomplishment to add to the long list.
Ace pitcher Erin Hocker is the 2018 Montana Gatorade softball player of the year.
The senior right-hander is the first Bison to receive the award - coming after a perfect 17-0 record on the bump. In just shy of 100 innings, she struck out 147 batters to post an era of just 0.79. Pitching isn't the only place Hocker succeeds, batting just under .300 on the season.
In her four years at Great Falls High, she racked up an astounding 494 strikeouts and a career record of 43-10.
The award also recognizes academic achievement and character shown on and off the field.
Hocker has not yet made an announcement of where she will attend college.
