HUNTSVILLE -- After helping Sam Houston State to a 5-0 record last week, Casey Everitt was named Aeropostale Southland Conference Hitter of the Week today.
Everitt, a freshman catcher and outfielder from Splendora, wins the honor for the first time and becomes the first Bearkat player to win Hitter of the Week honors since Lauren Boone was selected on April 25, 2005.
Everitt helped Sam Houston State to a 5-0 record last week, sweeping a
doubleheader against Jackson State and a three-game series against
A&M-Corpus Christi. She finished the week with a .474 batting average
(9-19), 10 RBI and four home runs, as the Bearkats outscored opponents 41-13. Everitt has a .295 batting average on the season, leading the team with four home runs on the season. The Spelndora, Texas native has a .318 batting average in SLC games only.
Sam Houston State currently stands in third place in the Southland
Conference race with a 5-1 league mark after series wins over McNeese State and Texas A&M-Corpus Christi.
The Bearkats travel to Arlington for a three-game series this Saturday and Sunday against the UTA Mavericks
