Comet Zone’s Student Athlete of the Month: April 2023, Alisha Fox

Andrew Little | Sports Editor

Sophomore Alisha Fox was a standout for the Comets softball last year and is off to another scorching start to the year. She is starring both on the mound and at the plate, leading the Comets in runs batted in and pitching in 35 of 36 innings.

Fox has demonstrated power as a batter hitting two home runs in her first six games, Mason’s only of the season so far, and tied for the Greater Miami Conference lead. Her six RBIs are the most on the team as well.

Her clutch hitting helped the Comets win their first game of the season against Siegel in Tennessee. She hit a home run and a double, knocking in four runs. Fox also pitched a complete game to seal the victory.

Pitching as Mason’s ace starter, Fox is second in the conference in innings pitched and has started every game thus far. Her 35 strikeouts rank third in the GMC.

In a recent game against Princeton, Fox threw 12 strikeouts in five innings as the Comets defeated the Vikings 11-1. She allowed no earned runs and added two base hits and an RBI as a batter.
