LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Southern Nazarene’s Caitlyn Curlee and Concordia Irvine’s Callie Nunes were named 2019 Louisville/Slugger NFCA Division II National Player and Pitcher of the Week honorees for games played April 8-14. 

Curlee connected on six home runs, including three in game three of a four-game Great American Conference series at Southwestern Oklahoma State. The sophomore slugger set single-game program records with those three long balls as well as eight RBI in the 19-5 victory. Curlee, selected GAC Hitter of the Week, also homered in the other three contests and finished the weekend batting .600 (9-for-15) with a double, 12 RBI, nine runs scored and a 1.867 slugging percentage. She doubled, homered, recorded two RBI and scored three times in game one and crossed the dish four times in the previously-mentioned game three.

Nunes, garnering her second award this year, was a workhorse last week picking up a win in all seven of the Eagles’ PacWest contests. The sophomore hurler tossed a no-hitter and was 7-0 with a 0.22 ERA and 40 strikeouts in 31.1 innings of work. Nunes fanned 12 as she tossed her fourth no-no of the season in a 4-0 win over Academy of Art, which also was CUI head coach Crystal Rosenthal’s 500thcareer victory. The PacWest Pitcher of the Week did not allow a run, scattered four hits and struck out 20 in 14 innings of a four-game series at Holy Names.
