Wallace, Harrison Honored By Sun Belt
Cajuns’ junior lefty Jordan Harrison, who threw a complete-game one hitter in Louisiana’s 2-1 baseball win over Western Kentucky Sunday, has been named Pitcher of the Week in the Sun Belt Conference.
And, freshman right-hander Jordan Wallace won the award in softball, after shutting out South Alabama twice over the weekend.
Harrison allowed only a solo home run by WKU’s Ryan Huck in the second inning Sunday. The lefty, making only his second start of the season, threw 120 pitches in a complete game. He struck out a career-high eleven. Harrison’s longest outing prior to Sunday was six innings against Southern Mississippi.
Wallace fanned a career-high 16 in the Friday win over South Alabama in a ten-inning nail-biter won by the Cajuns 1-0. She followed that up with a two hit shutout on Saturday, as the Cajuns got the three-game sweep over their conference rivals.
Cajuns softball will be busy this week, playing FIU in a three game series beginning Tuesday in Miami before heading to Murfreesboro this weekend to play Middle Tennessee. The Cajuns baseball team travels to Southern Tuesday night before hosting FIU in a three game series this weekend.
