YUMA, AZ – The Lady Matadors for the third straight week have earned ACCAC honors as infielder Bethany Olea won the D1 Player of the Week and pitcher Hayley Miller was named the D1 Pitcher of the Week.
“This is a really cool honor,” said AWC head coach Nikki Bethurum. “We have had a Pitcher of the Week honor and a Hitter of the Week honor, but not together this season. Bethany deserved this honor with her two walk-off hits last week and the way Hayley pitched against Mesa was remarkable.”
Olea went 4-for-5 at the plate against Mesa on Saturday, including a grand slam in game two. Overall, Olea drove in eight runs and walked four times in the two games against the Lady Thunderbirds.
Miller tossed six innings in a 9-1 win over Mesa and struck out three batters.
The Lady Matadors host the Glendale Lady Gaucho’s today starting at 12 noon at the AWC Softball Complex. After today’s games, they will next be in action on Saturday afternoon against South Mountain Community College beginning at 12 noon back at the AWC Softball Complex.
