Following their Spring Break trip to the desert of Arizona, a pair of Seward County Lady Saints have been honored by the Jayhawk West Conference as the KJCCC Pitcher and Co-Player of the Week.
Seward County sophomore Brittany Sharkey was named the Jayhawk West Pitcher of the Week and could not have been much better for the Lady Saints this week, posting a microscopic 0.33 ERA in 21 innings pitched, leading Seward to three wins. Sharkey’s big week started on Tuesday against Glendale when she threw a complete game against the Gauchos, allowing 5 hits and 1 earned run to lead Seward to an 8-2 win. The next day she went up against a powerful Odessa team and silenced them to just 1 hit in a complete game shutout victory. Friday she was back at it again, spinning a three hit shutout against Chandler-Gilbert in a 3-0 Seward County victory. Opponents hit just .118 off of Sharkey on the week and she did not allow a single walk in 21 innings of work.
Lady Saint 1st Baseman Stephanie Mark was named the Co-Player of the Week after hitting .450 for Seward this week in six contests. The sophomore from Ogden, Utah had three multi-hit games and hit in five of the Lady Saints six games on the week. Tuesday against Glendale she was 2 for 4 with a home run and 2 RBI’s and Wednesday in a split double header against Odessa and South Mountain she was 5 for 8 for Seward.
It is the second time this season that each has received the conference honor.
Seward (17-12, 0-2) hosts Garden City (8-11, 4-0) Thursday at 3 p.m. at Lady Saints Field before hosting Barton Friday at 3.
