Gibson had 30 strikeouts on the week including 18 in two games against then-No. 7 Oklahoma. She had just four walks and scattered nine hits over the three games.
Gibson earned her 11th shutout of the season on Sunday in A&M’s 1-0 win over OU. Against rival Texas on Wednesday, Gibson scattered three hits and struck out 12 while not allowing a walk. Saturday’s win over the Sooners was a 4-2 victory for Texas A&M with Gibson striking out 11 in the win.
