Former South Stanly softball standout named Big South Freshman of the Week

Presbyterian College freshman infielder Kaitlyn Tucker has been named the Big South Conference Softball Freshman of the Week for games played between March 29 and April 4, the league office announced on Monday.

Tucker had at least one hit in each of PC’s three games last week at Gardner-Webb, and for the series went 4-for-7 (.571) and added four walks for a .727 on-base percentage.

In Friday’s doubleheader at GWU, Tucker reached base seven times (three hits and four walks), laid down a sacrifice bunt, scored twice, drove in a run and stole the first base of her collegiate career. The Oakboro, N.C., native notched a base hit in Saturday’s series finale as well to extend her on-base streak to six straight, the longest current run by a Blue Hose.

For the season, Tucker is seventh in the Big South in batting average at .349 and third in on-base percentage at .500. In conference games, the freshman’s .435 average is fourth, while her .552 on-base percentage ranks second.

The award is the third Big South weekly honor for Presbyterian this season, as Tucker joins Jenna Greene and Jillian Hewes, who were named the league’s Pitcher of the Week and Freshman of the Week, respectively, back on Feb. 22.

The Blue Hose (9-9, 3-6 Big South) are back on the road this coming weekend as they visit Winthrop for a three-game set from April 10-11.
