Shepperd Nabs Weekly Conference Honor
Monday, March 9, 2009

ELMHURST, Ill. – For the first time this season Centenary junior Allison Shepperd earned The Summit League’s Hitter of the Week award.  This is the fifth time a Ladies’ softball student-athlete has garnered the conference’s weekly honor.


Over the weekend Shepperd hit .381 (8-for-21) helping the Ladies to a 5-2 record, posting wins over Grambling (10-2), Kennesaw State (8-5), Winthrop (9-2), Akron (2-1) and Toledo (5-3).  The junior third baseman belted two homers, a double, drove in seven RBIs, scored three runs and swiped two bases en route to being named to the Buzz Classic All-Tournament team.


The Ladies play four games this week, as they will travel to Northwestern State on Wednesday then host IPFW on Friday and Saturday for the conference opener. All three games against the Mastodons will be on www.GoCentenary.com starting five minutes before first pitch.
