    SEC Softball Players Of The Week

    SEC SOFTBALL PLAYERS OF THE WEEK (April 8 – April 14)

    SEC PLAYER OF THE WEEK
    Kelsey Stewart - Florida
    2B  • Fr. • Wichita, Kan.


    Stewart batted .500 or above in all four UF’s games last week, including a career-tying three hits vs. South Florida Wednesday to string together a four-game multi-hit streak. She had the game-tying RBI against the Bulls Wednesday, had Florida’s first hit and scored the Gators first run in the series-opener against Kentucky, had two of UF’s three hits Saturday against the Wildcats and then led off the game with a single and scored for the Gators’ first hit and run in Sunday’s series clincher vs. UK. Stewart leads Florida with 18 multiple hit games and is 13 hits away from the UF freshman record  (75). Her 29 stolen bases are two shy of the Florida single-season record (31).

    SEC PITCHER OF THE WEEK
    Kelsey Nunley - Kentucky
    Fr. • Soddy Daisy, Tenn.


    Nunley pitched 25.2 innings and went 3-0 on the week to become the first player in school history to win 20 games in a single season, surpassing former UK players Chanda Bell and Keary Camunas. She started the week with complete game wins over Marshall and Eastern Kentucky before getting the win over No. 3/4 Florida on Saturday, where she allowed only three hits behind eight strikeouts. The UF win moved her record to 20-4. Nunley followed that performance with 4.2 strong innings in relief on Sunday. Her 15 strikeouts this week moved her into eighth all-time on UK single-season strikeout list.    

    SEC FRESHMAN OF THE WEEK
    Geri Ann Glasco - Georgia
    P/1B • Watkinsville, Ga.


    Glasco finished with a .412 batting average over five games for the Bulldogs last week. She slugged at a 1.176 clip, registered an OPS of 1.620 and had four home runs against South Carolina over the weekend. Glasco became the first player in program history to hit three home runs in a game in Georgia’s 7-6 win over South Carolina. She also hit a two-run blast in the rubber game of the series, which was the eventual game winner, as UG won the game 2-0. Glasco accounted for 16 of Georgia’s runs 32 last week (scoring five and driving in 11). Each of her HRs were either go-ahead homers or game-winners. Glasco also went 1-1 in the circle last week with a pair of complete game performances.
