SPRINGFIELD, Ohio – With one doubleheader remaining to capture the OCCAC regular season conference championship, Ashley Brown was selected as the Softball Pitcher of the Week for the fourth time this season.  Needing to sweep Cuyahoga Sunday to position the Pride one game up with two games remaining, Ashley and teammate Cierra Chastain pulled off the doubleheader road sweep.

Brown (SO/RHP – Carlisle H.S.) brings home her fourth OCCAC accolade this season and first since March 18 after starting the season by winning the laurel in three of four weeks. For her latest recognition, Brown worked a 20-inning shift over the course of four appearances. She picked up the win in all three starts and the save in a relief showing. Brown totaled 14 strikeouts while allowing two runs on 13 hits and issuing zero walks. She tossed six innings in Game 1 at Cuyahoga before coming back in Game 2 of the doubleheader with 1.1 innings of relief as the Tartan Pride took over first place in the OCCAC standings.

 

Sinclair (26-13 / 12-2 OCCAC) has one final OCCAC doubleheader against Owens on Friday at Athletes in Action to secure the OCCAC regular season championship for the first time since the program was reinstated 7 years ago.
