LOUISVILLE, Ky. –  Columbus State’s Keeli Waugh and Claflin’s Tiaria Norman garnered Louisville/Slugger NFCA Division II National Player and Pitcher of the week recognition for contests played April 16-22.

Waugh, a senior from Dacula, Ga., powered her way to the award and helped the Cougars go 4-0 in Peach Belt Conference play last week. She hit .667 (10-for-15), launched five home runs, doubled, knocked in 15 runs, slugged 1.733 and scored eight times. Waugh clubbed two grand slams in a game one win over UNC Pembroke and hit two more with four total hits, five RBI and four runs scored in the nightcap. The PBC Player of the Week homered again against Francis Marion, going 2-for-3 with two RBI and two runs scored.

Norman went 4-0 with a 0.31 ERA last week, tossing a no-hitter at Converse, striking out 37 in 22.2 innings of work. She limited her opposition to just one run on three hits and a .043 batting average. Norman also chipped in at the plate, hitting .333 with two doubles, five RBI and five runs.

The senior hurler fanned 10 in her first start of the week, no-hitting Converse in a five-inning victory. Three day later against Benedict, Norman struck out a season-high 15, surrendering a run in a one-hit complete-game victory. A native of Greenwood, S.C., Norman recorded a one-hit shutout in game two against the Tigers. She closed out the three-game Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference sweep with five innings of one-hit shutout relief, fanning eight in the comeback win.
