Danielle Lawrie Named Louisville Slugger/NFCA National Player of the Week

 Washington pitcher Danielle Lawrie has been named the Louisville Slugger/NFCA Division I National Player of the Week, the NFCA announced on Tuesday. 

Lawrie, a junior from Langley, British Columbia, went 3-0 last weekend at the Cathedral City Classic, not allowing a run in 23.0 innings to extend her consecutive scoreless innings streak to 52.1 innings. She struck out 43 batters and allowed just five hits in three games, two against ranked teams. 

This week’s Pac-10 Pitcher of the Week, Lawrie’s weekend started with a nine-inning, two-hit shutout of No. 2 Florida in the Huskies 1-0 win. Lawrie struck out 12 Gators and allowed just two singles against the powerful Florida lineup. She followed with two victories on Sunday, shutting out Nebraska on one hit with 15 strikeouts and pitching an eight-inning, two-hit shutout with 16 strikeouts against No. 24 Ohio State. 

Against Nebraska, Lawrie allowed a leadoff single in the first inning, then retired the next 21 batters she faced. She also added a solo home run in the Huskies 6-0 win. 

Lawrie has allowed just two earned runs in 64.1 innings this season and is 9-0 with a 0.25 ERA. She has 107 strikeouts and just 11 walks this season. 

Washington jumped from No. 7 to No. 3 in this week’s USA Today/NFCA Division I Top 25 Poll. The Huskies garnered more first-place votes (11) than any other team in the poll and are now 14-0 on the 2009 season.
