Louisville Slugger/NFCA Division I Player Of The Week

Courtney Blades, pitcher from the University of Southern Mississippi, is the Louisville Slugger/NFCA Division I Player of the Week for the Week of March 13-19. This is the second time this year that she has been selected.

Blades was 4-0 this weekend at the Winthrop Invitational as she led No. 10 Southern Miss to its second tournament championship in as many weeks and its third of the season. In 26.7 innings, Blades struck out 60 and allowed just ten hits and two runs. Of the ten hits she allowed, nine were singles.

Blades ran her season strikeout total to 311 and is now just 219 away from becoming the NCAA Division I All-Time Career Strikeout Leader. In addition, her four victories this past weekend advanced her career record to 122-30 and moved her into sole possession of third place on the NCAA Division I career win list.
