Softball: TWU pitcher earns league honor

Comments () A Text Size

Texas Woman’s University senior pitcher Larisa Garcia has been named Lone Star Conference Softball Pitcher of the Week for the week of Feb. 19-25. She also won the award last April.

Garcia tossed a one-hit shutout against host St. Edward’s on Sunday to help the Pioneers to a first-place finish at the SEU Tournament. She lost the no-hit bid with two outs in the seventh, allowing a bloop single on a 2-2 count. On the season she has a 4-1 record, 20 strikeouts, a 2.42 ERA and team-best .191 opponent batting average.

No. 14 TWU is back in action at 5 p.m. today, when they play host to St. Mary’s at Pioneer Field.
