ROCK HILL, SC -- Catawba's Carley Tysinger (Lexington, NC/C. Davidson HS) was named the SAC Softball Pitcher of the Week and Carson-Newman shortstop Brittany Hefner has been named Player of the Week. The league office announced the award on Tuesday.

Tysinger earned SAC Pitcher of the Week honors for the third-straight week by going 3-0 with a 0.30 ERA and 30 strikeouts in three starts. 
 
Tysinger kicked off her week by throwing a complete-game one-hitter against Barton, striking out 10 in a 2-0 Catawba victory. 
 
She then started two games on Sunday, the first being a nine-inning shutout of Le Moyne in which she fanned 12.  The freshman followed that up with another complete game victory against fourth-ranked North Georgia, striking out eight while allowing just a single earned run. 
 
On the season, Tysinger is 8-0 with a conference-leading 0.33 ERA and 88 strikeouts. 

Hefner led Carson-Newman to two victories over Lees-McRae and two wins over Concord by hitting .538 with five extra-base hits and 13 RBI.  She had a 1.462 slugging percentage on the week and didn’t strike out in 13 at-bats.
 
Hefner opened her week with a huge game against Lees-McRae, going 3-for-4 with a home run, a double and a triple as the Eagles rolled, 12-2.  The freshman had eight RBI in the game, which matched a school record. 
 
She also closed the week with a big performance, going 3-for-4 with two homers and five RBI in a 9-1 win over Concord on Saturday. 
 
Hefner currently leads the SAC with seven home runs and 34 RBI, and ranks third with a .473 batting average.
