ATLANTA, Ga. – In her first-ever weekend in the Purple and Gold Lipscomb softball freshman Katie Turner has been named the ASUN Pitcher of the Week, as announced by the league offices on Monday.
Turner came out of the gates hot in her freshman campaign, going 2-0 with a 0.64 ERA over the weekend at the Cowgirl Classic.
She started out with a complete-game shutout of Samford, allowing just one hit and one walk and dishing nine strikeouts in a 7-0 win over the Bulldogs.
Turner followed that performance with another complete game outing in a 6-1 Lipscomb victory over host McNeese State. She allowed three hits, one run, and five walks, and dealt five strikeouts in the win.
She also had a strong weekend at bat, adding five hits, three doubles, and four RBI in nine trips to the plate.
Turner and the rest of the Lady Bisons have another nonconference tournament on deck for this weekend as they take on the Jaguar Challenge at South Alabama.
