Her last name might be difficult to say, but it’s easy to see why Panagopoylos was so valuable to the Hammonton softball program. She held down the third base position for several years and as a senior lead the team in nearly every offensive category.
She hit nearly .500 with 30 hits, 31 RBIs, 24 runs scored, 12 home runs, eight doubles and slugged better than 1.000.
For her career, Panagopoylos batted .442 with 25 home runs, 95 RBIs, 26 doubles, 77 runs, 96 hits, 22 walks and a slugging percentage of .935. But it was more than just the numbers for one of the top players in the Cape-Atlantic League. She provided leadership and brought consistency and power to the middle of the lineup, and she helped solidify an infield that became one of the better ones in the league.
The Sienna University commit earned third-team All-State honors as a senior this spring.
