Macey Myers became the first player in Delaware Technical Community College softball to eclipse both 100 hits and 100 runs batted in.

The Milford High School star went 4-6 and knocked in 6 RBI’s in a double header against Anne Arundel Community College to open the season which put her over the 100 mark in both categories supplanting her in the history books forever.

Myers was named Eastern Pennsylvania Athletic Conference Player of the Week for softball due to her outstanding stats during the teams first four games of the 2023 season. She batted 9-for-11 with 6 doubles, 1 home run, and 9 RBI.

Myers didn’t know she had set the records till she was told that a practice.

“I never thought about it or never crossed my mind, like it was a complete surprise,” she said. “They announced it at practice one day and I had no idea they had anything planned. I had no idea how many hits or how close I was.”

In a press release from Del Tech, as of March 15, Myers has 110 career hits and 115 career RBI, and the team has 33 games remaining in the regular season.

As a freshman, she recorded 39 hits, 44 RBI, and had a batting average of .494. The next season, she blew those numbers out of the water with 58 hits, 59 RBI, and a .460 batting average.

“I have an approach where all I try to do is hit the ball hard,” she said. “That has always been my approach since I was 12 years old.”

While Myers technically accomplished both over parts of three seasons, she ultimately did it in just 64 games.

Jason Burlew the public relations manager at the school, emphasized she accomplished in a set of games what would be a normal career for any other player.

Her freshman season was shortened by at least five games due to other schools not competing during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Since she only needed two games in her third season to break 100 hits, she likely would’ve done it sooner if she had played the regular amount of games during her first season.
