Sowa Named MVC Softball Newcomer Of The Week
ST. LOUIS – Drake freshman Megan Sowa (Gurnee, Ill.) has been named the Missouri Valley Conference Softball Newcomer of the Week, the league office announced today.
Sowa hit a blistering .545 this past weekend to help Drake capture the Woo Pig Fastpitch Classic title with a 3-1 record, including a 7-4 victory over No. 24 Arkansas in the title game.
Sowa’s average led the team, as she went 6-for-11 along with two runs scored and three runs batted in the four games. The outfielder recorded four hits, two RBI and two runs scored in a pair of contests against the Razorbacks.
For the season, Sowa holds the top batting average on the squad at .364 (16-of-44), to go along with one triple, three doubles, six RBI and eight runs scored.
Drake is back in action on Friday, March 7, at the Mizuno Classic in Stillwater, Okla. hosted by Oklahoma State with two games on the slate. First up is a non-conference matchup with league-mate Missouri State at 11 a.m. followed by a contest with Cowgirls at 4:30 p.m.
