LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Birmingham-Southern College’s Haley Crumpton and Whittier College’s Brittany Attaway claimed Louisville Slugger/NFCA Division III National Pitcher and Player of the Week honors on Wednesday.
Senior left-hander Crumpton went 2-0 with a 0.00 earned-run average last week. The Alabaster, Ala., native tossed a perfect game with 10 strikeouts against Millsaps, then allowed just one hit over five innings in her second appearance of the week, yielding just a single walk in her 10 innings in the circle. She also helped herself at the plate, with two doubles and a .500 batting average.
Meanwhile, Attaway was perfect at the plate, going 5-for-5 with seven runs scored and eight RBI when opposing pitchers weren’t wise enough to walk her, which they did 10 times over four games. The Claremont, Calif., native hit two homers in an 11-10 win over Cal Lutheran, including the game-tying two-run blast in the bottom of the eighth.
