UNG's Poole named PBC Pitcher of the Week for second time
By Staff reports
UNG sophomore softball player Courtney Poole collected her second Peach Belt Conference AstroTurf Pitcher of the Week honor of the season on Tuesday following a week in which she posted three wins and save.
In four appearances in the circle for the 15th-ranked Nighthawks, she allowed just one earned run in 20 innings of work. The sophomore walked five and struck out 16 for a 0.35 ERA.
She tossed two seven-inning complete games, starting with a 2-1 win over Georgia College, allowing the one earned run on seven hits. She followed that up with a five-inning complete game in a 9-1 win over UNCP, allowing just one hit and striking out eight. She went the full seven in the opener against FMU, striking out four in a 4-1 win and then returned to toss a perfect seventh inning to get a save in an 8-5 win over the Patriots.
Poole leads the PBC in complete games and is fourth in ERA, third in wins and fifth in strikeouts.
