Plain Earns Third Pac-12 Pitcher Of The Week Of 2021
SAN FRANCISCO - For the third time in four weeks, Washington's Gabbie Plain has been named the Pitcher of the Week by the Pac-12 Conference. Plain has earned a weekly award every week of the 2021 season, with three from the Pac-12 and one from the NFCA.
Last week, Plain allowed just one run in 8.1 innings of work, striking out 17 and giving up just three baserunners. While Plain did have her 25.2-inning scoreless streak come to a close, she has now allowed one or fewer hits in four straight appearances. Since allowing a run in the first inning against San Diego State on February 26, Plain has a 0.25 ERA with 52 strikeouts and just nine baserunners allowed.
Plain has now earned nine weekly honors from the Pac-12 in her career, including six Pitcher of the Week awards. Danielle Lawrie is the only pitcher in Washington history to earn more weekly awards from the Pac-12.
Plain has also earned three weekly awards from the Pac-12 in every full season of her career. Lawrie and Taran Alvelo are the only Husky pitchers to accomplish that in multiple years, with Lawrie the only other Husky to do so in three different seasons.
Plain was not the only Husky to earn an award from the Pac-12 this week, as Sami Reynolds earned Player of the Week for this first time this season and second time in her career.
This week, the Huskies return home for their first games at Husky Softball Stadium since the 2019 Super Regionals. Washington will host Seattle U and Portland State in the Husky Classic, which will begin Friday, March 12. Every game will be streamed live and for free on the Washington live stream.
