Andrews Earns Softball Honors

GREENVILLE, N.C. - Senior outfielder Stacey Andrews has been named Conference USA Hitter-of-the-Week, according to an announcement by the league on Monday afternoon.

Andrews helped lift the Pirates to the 2008 Pirate Clash title, in which the team outscored its opponents 42-20 while compiling a 5-1 record. She played and started all six games of the tournament, hitting .571 (8-for-14) while scoring six runs. The senior produced two doubles, a home run, seven RBI, two walks, three stolen bases, two sacrifice bunts and a sac fly. Andrews raised her average to .405 for the season, which is the second-best mark on the squad.

The Greenville, N.C native tallied four RBI against Delaware on two hits, going 2-for-3 in the contest. On the week, Andrews scored six runs, including two each against Radford and Liberty. She hit safely in five of six games and recorded three extra-base hits, including two doubles and a home run versus Radford. Andrews was 3-for-3 stealing bases, moving her season total to four.

This is Andrews' first career weekly C-USA honor. She is the first Pirate to receive a C-USA Player-of-the-Week honor since Toni Paisley was named Pitcher-of-the-Week on Apr. 23, 2007.

The Pirates travel to Orlando this weekend, opening conference play as they face off against the UCF Knights at the UCF Softball Complex.
