MAVERICKS SWEEP WEEKLY AWARDS
March 18, 2008
FRISCO - For the second-straight week, UT Arlington's Cara Hulme was voted Southland Conference Pitcher of the Week, while teammate Brittany Washington was voted this week's Hitter of the Week, today. It is second career honor for Hulme, while Washington wins her first career honor.
Washington, a sophomore, led the Mavs in the series sweep of Northwestern State with a .857 average for the weekend. She racked up three home runs in the double header to drive her season total to a team leading seven. In each game of this weekend's games against the Lady Demons, she scored a pair of runs and tallied seven RBI on the week.
Washington is hitting .358 on the season, ranking No. 11 in the SLC.
Hulme continued her dominance in the circle recording her third and fourth consecutive games without giving up a run, as she finished the week with a 2-0 record and 0.00 ERA. She held the Lady Demons to a .212 batting average allowing just seven hits in 9.2 innings of work while tallying 15 strikeouts and walking only three.
On the season, Hulme is 5-2 with a SLC best 1.13 ERA.
The Mavericks will take a break from league play when they host Louisiana Tech in a midweek doubleheader on Wednesday. The first pitch is scheduled for 4 p.m. at Allan Saxe Field with the second game to follow approximately 30 minutes after the completion of game one.
