Wallace Named SAC Softball Pitcher of the Week
ROCK HILL, SC -- Catawba freshman Chelsea Wallace (Danville, KY/Danville HS) and Carson-Newman’s Jessie Howard (Knoxville, TN) have been named the South Atlantic Conference Pitcher and Player of the Week. It was announced by league officials on Monday. Wallace helped Catawba to three wins over four league games.
Wallace won both of her starts on the week, firing Catawba past Mars Hill and Tusculum in SAC play. The freshman tossed a pair of complete games, allowing only an unearned run on four hits in a 6-1 win at Mars Hill on Wednesday. She followed with a one-hit shutout of Tusculum on Friday in 2-0 win.
For the week, Wallace allowed only six hits and one unearned run in 15.2 innings of work, while striking out five. She improved her record on the year to 8-2.
Howard batted .357 for the week in leading C-N to a 4-0 record with sweeps of Tusculum and Newberry.
The SAC Softball Player and Pitcher of the Week are selected by a vote of the league's nine sports information directors.
