The NFCA (National Fastpitch Coaches Association) and Diamond Sports have announced the 10 student-athletes who have earned the honor of being named a 2013 Diamond Sports Catcher of the Year and Rock Valley College's Vivi Marquez is one of the 10 athletes selected for the honor.
Marquez batted .504 for the Golden Eagles as a freshman during the 2013 season. She finished third in the nation in runs batted in for NJCAA Division III with 70 and finished fourth in the nation in home runs with 10. Marquez scored 67 runs in 41 games and added 17 doubles and eight stolen bases, while slugging .884 with an on-base percentage of .578.
The freshman catcher from Hononegah High School was previously named conference MVP and first team all-conference catcher for the N4C (North Central Community College Conference), all-region for NJCAA Region IV, and was named an NJCAA All-American.
The Diamond Sports Catcher of the Year award is presented annually to the top catcher from an NFCA member institution in each of the following divisions: NCAA (Divisions I, II, and III), NAIA, NJCAA (Divisions I, II, and III), Cal JC, NWAACC, and high school.
A committee comprised of head coaches in each of the 10 divisions determines the winner of their respective award.
