In her career, Daunhauer has recorded a G-MAC record 330 hits and 135 stolen bases. A Daviess County High School graduate, Daunhauer currently sits second all-time in league history for highest career batting average.

Mullen started 48 games at second base for Wesleyan this season. She finished with a .303 batting average, nine doubles, a triple and a team-leading nine homeruns. Mullen hit 28 career homeruns, a Kentucky Wesleyan school record.

The Panthers' cleanup hitter has driven in a team-best 43 runs this season — a total that ranks second in the Great Midwest Conference. Mullen produced multiple hits in a game 10 times, including four doubles and eight RBIs in a stellar performance against Malone on March 22.

The Panthers finished the 2019 season 22-26 overall with a 13-9 in the G-MAC.
