The seven RBIs were also the seventh-most in a single game this year in the NCAA.

In a four-game set April 14-15, she went 11-for-14 with seven runs scored, three doubles, and three home runs in the Ladies sweep of Dallas. Her two home runs in the second game on Saturday was the first time a Centenary hitter has hit two round trippers in one game in five seasons.

On the bases, Dunn successfully swiped four bases in as many attempts.

In the outfield, she added two assists. In the second game against LeTourneau, she threw a strike from the warning track in right to junior Wendy Gillet at first. Gillet flipped the ball home to easily throw out the runner trying to score.
