COLUMBIA, Mo. – University of Missouri softball Head Coach Larissa Anderson announced Friday the addition of Northern Iowa transfer outfielder Mya Dodge. Dodge racked up Missouri Valley Conference Player of the Year (2023) and Freshman of the Year (2022) honors over her two seasons as a Panther.

Dodge, a 5-6 left fielder from Hiawatha, Iowa, was a two-time All-MVC First Teamer and two-time NFCA All-Region selection (First Team in 2023 and Third Team in 2022) at UNI.

She led the team in OPS (1.363), slugging percentage (.899), triples (5), home runs (17), and RBIs (68, 16 multi-RBI games) during her sophomore campaign in Cedar Falls, Iowa. Dodge also set a new Panthers program record for most RBIs in a single season, breaking the previous record of 59 RBIs set in 2009.

She slashed .388/.464/.899 as UNI’s cleanup hitter in 2023. In the field, Dodge had a .979 fielding percentage with 47 putouts.

She went a career-best 4-for-4 with three home runs, a triple, four runs and eight RBI in Northern Iowa’s 17-5 win over Southern Illinois on April 14.

Dodge also produced 20 multi-hit games in 2023.

In 2022, she was named a NFCA/Schutte Sports Freshman of the Year Top 25 candidate after she paced the Panthers in batting average (.373), at bats (153), runs (43), hits (57), stolen bases (21), and sacrifice flies (4). Dodge appeared and started in all 46 games at designated player and left field. She also earned 2022 MVC All-Tournament honors.

Over two seasons with UNI, Dodge helped the Panthers capture two Missouri Valley Conference Regular-Season titles. She appeared in 94 total games (92 starts), batting .380 (.452 on-base percentage and .798 slugging percentage) with 102 RBI, 111 hits and 30 home runs.

Dodge secured four MVC Weekly honors (newcomer twice in 2022 and player twice in 2023) over her two years at UNI.
