COLLEGE STATION -- Texas A&M senior Megan Gibson was named the Big 12 Pitcher of the Week for the fifth time this season, after logging three victories over No. 18 Baylor and Missouri. Gibson has received eight conference weekly honors over the course of her Aggie career.
Against the Bears, Gibson was a walk and a hit away from a perfect game, tossing six complete innings and striking out three along the way. In the two-game series against Missouri, the senior struck out 20 in 14-complete innings while only allowing two free passes.
For the 14th-straight game, Gibson has held a sub-one ERA, currently sitting at a 0.92. Gibson has registered five of the Aggies’ six Big 12 wins, tying her career-high from 2007 and helping A&M to its best start in league play. The Spring, Texas native leads the conference in wins (21), walks (34), doubles (11), shutouts (10), innings pitched (145), and complete games (20).
Missouri’s Jen Bruck was named Big 12 Player of the Week after hitting at a .500 clip (6-for-12) last week in the Tigers’ four games in the state of Texas.
