Alabama sophomore pitcher Kelsi Dunne has been named the Louisville Slugger/NFCA Division I National Player of the Week for the week ending April 5, the NFCA announced on Tuesday. 

Dunne collected all three wins against then-No. 6 Georgia last weekend. In 13 innings in the circle, she gave up one earned run, struck out 11 and allowed eight hits, holding the Bulldogs to a .190 team batting average. For the week, Dunne posted an 0.54 ERA. 

The Port Orange, Fla., native allowed a single run in the first game against Georgia, then came back and earned the win by pitching an inning in relief in an extra-inning thriller in the nightcap. In Sunday’s series finale, Dunne struck out 10 en route to the shutout 

Alabama moved up one spot to No. 4 in this week’s USA Today/NFCA Division I Top 25 Poll.
