Maya Brady, Oaks Christian alumna, Class of 2019, and current UCLA redshirt-junior, has been named the 2023 Pac-12 Player of the Year for softball.
Brady led the Pac-12 conference in three separate categories: batting average (.456), slugging percentage (.873) and extra-base hits (31). She also led the Bruins with 16 home runs and 56 runs batted in, which were good for second in the conference. She is one of just two players in the country hitting for a .450-plus average with at least 15 home runs and 55 runs batted in.
In her time at Oaks Christian, Brady was a superstar. Over her career, she hit .464 with 25 home runs and 89 runs batted in. She is top-10 all-time in runs batted in and second all-time in home runs for the Lady Lions.
Brady is currently leading the Bruins in the first ever Pac-12 softball tournament after winning the regular-season title. The Bruins are ranked second in the nation behind Oklahoma.
