YUMA, AZ – For the first time this season, sophomore middle infielder Summer Ehrig (Yuma, AZ) from the Lady Matador softball team has won the ACCAC Division-One Hitter of the Week award.
“This is great for Summer and the entire Lady Matador softball team,” said AWC Athletic Director Jerry Smith. “The team has gotten off to a great start and recognition like this shows that other teams and the conference as a whole are noticing what this team is doing.”
AWC went 4-0 last week much in part to Ehrig’s performance on the field. She went 7-for-11 at the plate with two doubles, and two homeruns. Ehrig also totaled six RBI’s and scored five runs.
The Lady Mats will get some well-deserved rest this week after Tuesday’s cancellation against Yavapai College due to them dropping their softball program for the season. The Lady Matadors will next be in action on Saturday at home against the Mesa Lady Thunderbirds. Saturday’s game will be a doubleheader starting at 12 noon at the AWC Softball Complex.
