NFCA, Louisville Slugger, Wilson, Louisville Slugger/NFCA Division II Player of the Week, Wilson/NFCA Division II Pitcher of the Week,  Laney Sheppard, MSU Denver, Meagan Hill, Angelo State

LOUISVILLE, Ky. –Metropolitan State University of Denver’s Laney Sheppard and Angelo State’s Meagan Hill were named 2020 Louisville Slugger/NFCA Division II Player and Wilson/NFCA Pitcher of the Week, respectively, for their outstanding play during games played, Feb. 3-9.

Sheppard added to her NCAA Division II-best home run and RBI totals with a two-homer, 12 RBI week. Helping MSU Denver to a 5-0 mark, she hit .500 (7-for-14), slugged .929 and walked five times, which contributed to her .600 on-base percentage. Sheppard, a native of Fountain Valley, Calif., recorded a homer and four RBI versus Central Washington and added three RBI against Concordia-Portland and Northwest Nazarene. The two-time Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Player of the Week registered two hits and knocked in two runs in a 7-1 triumph over St. Mary’s. 

Hill, who hails from Salado, Texas, was dominant in her first two starts of the season at the Florida Tech Invite. The senior hurler tossed a no-hitter versus Molloy and allowed just two base runners in her two complete-game triumphs. Against the Lions, Hill was just a walk away from a perfect game in which she struck out 11 during a 2-0 victory. The Lone Star Conference Pitcher of the Week followed that performance with a one-hit shutout against No. 9 Florida Tech, fanning four and walking zero Panthers.
