LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Veronica Alred of Rollins and Hanna Gill of Southern Arkansas have been chosen as the Louisville Slugger/NFCA Division II National Player and Pitcher of the Week for February 27, respectively.
In helping No. 8 Rollins to a perfect 8-0 week, Alred, a junior utility player and reigning Sunshine State Conference Player of the Week, hit .560 overall (14-for-25) with seven runs scored, three HR’s and 15 RBIs while slugging at a .960 clip. She hit safely in six of the Tars’ eight contests with multiple base knocks in each of those match-ups. During a 16-0 victory over Kentucky State, Alred had a career day, going 3-for-3 with two HR’s, including a grand slam, and seven RBIs. A native of Royal Palm Beach, Fla., she currently owns a .410 season batting average with a team-best four HR’s to go along with 22 RBIs.
The current Great American Conference’s Pitcher of the Week, Southern Arkansas’ Gill played a major role in the Lady Muleriders’ perfect week. She made five appearances in the circle while registering a 4-0 record with a miniscule 0.57 ERA, a save and 32 strikeouts over just 24 innings of work while allowing the opposition to hit at just a .134 clip. A sophomore at SAU, Gill struck out 11 during a 9-1 (6 inn.) triumph over Arkansas Tech and eight in both a 4-3 win against Newman and a 4-0 shutout of Arkansas Tech. Currently 8-3 on the season, Gill has fired nine complete games, tallied a 2.75 ERA and struck out 75 batters in a team-high 76.1 innings of work.
