Lady Eagles Sweep AMC Weekly Awards


St. Louis, Mo. - Williams Baptist College duo Karisa Hendrix and Jill Graham have earned this week's installment of the American Midwest Conference Softball Pitcher and Player of the Week.

Hendrix, a junior hurler for the Eagles, posted two of Williams’ four wins on the week on the mound. The Cherokee Village, Ark., native notched a pair of five inning decisions and appeared in one inning of another game, allowing zero earned runs this week.

Hendrix struck out 19 batters in just 11 innings of work including a 10 strikeout performance against Harris-Stowe. She gave up just two hits and four walks to earn her third pitcher of the year honor this year.
Jill Graham led the Eagles on the offensive end this week, hitting 0.714 through four contests. The junior shortstop went five-for-seven with four runs scored, a triple, two homers and 11 RBIs. The Jonesboro, Ark., native also logged a walk and a stolen base, helping the 15th ranked Eagles to doubleheader sweeps of Crowley's Ridge College and Harris-Stowe State University.
