    SEC FRESHMAN OF THE WEEK
    Julie Sarratt - South Carolina
    P, Gaffney, S.C. 

    Tossed a no-hitter in her collegiate debut, blanking Coastal Carolina during the Palmetto State Showdown. She struck out five and walked one, and faced two batters over the minimum. Also contributed to her own cause, going 2-for-3 at the plate with an RBI and a double. The no-hitter is the 44th in South Carolina history and the first since 2008. It is believed to be the first no-hitter by a Gamecock in their debut.
