PORTLAND, Ore. – With the 2024 Great Northwest Athletic Conference softball season kicking off on Friday, senior infielder Emma Mulligan from Northwest Nazarene was featured on the latest episode of GNAC Insider previewing the upcoming season.

Mulligan’s Nighthawks are the three-time reigning GNAC regular-season champion, and were unanimously picked to win their fourth straight championship in the 2024 GNAC preseason coaches poll. Mulligan discusses her role on the team last season, as she dealt with overcoming an injury and found ways to contribute to the championship culture while being sidelined from action.

Going into her senior collegiate season, Mulligan has started 116 games for the Nighthawks while racking up 94 hits, five home runs, 39 stolen bases and 45 RBIs.
