Stanford Sweeps Weekly Softball Awards
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - STANFORD freshman outfielder Cassandra Roulund was named Pac-12 Softball Player of the Week, and Cardinal junior Teagan Gerhart was named Pac-12 Softball Pitcher of the Week for April 30-May 6, Commissioner Larry Scott announced today.
Roulund led Stanford on offense as the Cardinal picked up four wins, including a sweep of No. 14 Washington. It was just Stanford's second Pac-12 series win of the year. Roulund hit .600 (6-for-10), including two doubles and one home run. She scored six runs, tallied eight RBI and posted a 1.100 slugging percentage. In Friday's 4-0 win over the Huskies, Roulund was 2-for-3 with one run scored and one RBI. She also recorded her first career stolen base. Roulund was 3-for-3 in Tuesday's win over Santa Clara, driving in a season-high five runs.
Gerhart was 3-0 in the circle last week and registered her first save of the season in Saturday's win over Washington. She allowed just one run in 18.0 innings for a 0.39 ERA after entering the week with a 2.91 ERA. Gerhart posted her seventh and eighth shutouts of the year against Washington, not allowing the Huskies to score a run in 13.0 innings of work. She also picked up her 30th win of the season on Sunday, the fourth-most victories in a single season by a Stanford pitcher.
This is the first Player of the Week honor for Roulund and Gerhart's fifth Pitcher of the Week award. Stanford has won 51 weekly honors all-time.
Stanford finishes the regular season on the road at Utah. The series begins Thursday, May 10, at 4 p.m. MT.
