Farish Beard earned her second consecutive Sun Belt Conference Pitcher of the Week honor for her performance over the past week.

She went 3-0 last weekend in the Florida Atlantic hosted Parents’ Weekend to improve to 12-1 on the season. She struck out 28 batters and only allowed seven hits and two earned runs and two walks in 22 innings pitched. She now holds a team-leading 0.64 ERA.

Against Marshall she retired 19 consecutive batters in the 1-0 Jaguar win.

On the season she has 118 strikeouts and only three earned runs in 69 1/3 innings pitched.

This is her third weekly honor of the season and the fourth honor for a Jaguar as Blair Johnson was named Player of the Week two weeks ago. It also marked that a Jaguar has been honored for either Pitcher of the Week or Player of the Week in four of the five voting periods so far this season.

South Alabama will face Nicholls State on Wednesday at Jaguar Field. This weekend they will be in Stillwater, Oklahoma for the Cowgirl Classic where they will face the University of New Mexico on Saturday and Oklahoma State University twice on Sunday.
