LOUISVILLE, Ky. – An outstanding week’s effort spanning games over September 2-8 has earned Victoria Griswell of Glascock County High School in Gibson, Ga., the latest MaxPreps/NFCA National High School Player of the Week award.
Griswell led the Panthers from both the plate and in the circle over the past week as Glascock County H.S. ran its season-opening winning streak to 12 straight games. The senior pitcher/shortstop registered a .538 batting average (7-for-13) in addition to scoring five runs, registering three doubles and swiping eight bases. She also posted a perfect 4-0 pitching mark with a miniscule 0.24 ERA, four complete games and 26 strikeouts over 29 innings of work. Her finest effort at the plate came during a 10-2 victory over Burke County (Ga.) during which Griswell was 3-for-4 at the dish with three tallies and an impressive five stolen bases. She reached the 10-strikeout plateau for the first time this year on Sept. 5 while topping Burke County (Ga.) via a complete-game effort, 4-0.
For the season Griswell is a perfect 11-0 from the circle with a 0.11 ERA and 63 strikeouts over 61 frames while hitting .515 overall with seven extra-base hits, 13 runs scored and 15 thefts.
