PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Senior shortstop Selena Hernandez was tabbed the American Athletic Conference Player of the Week by conference officials for her outstanding showing at the plate this week.
She becomes the second Cougar this season to earn the award and adds to her conference selections as she was named to the Weekly Honor Roll in two weeks earlier this season.
Hernandez went 3-for-3 against No. 25/RV Texas on Wednesday, belting two of the Cougars four home runs that night. She also drew two walks, scored four runs and batted in three runs against the Longhorn pitching staff.
On Friday, Hernandez went yard again with her fifth home run of the season to tie game two of the doubleheader vs. East Carolina. The Cougars ended up winning off a walk-off hit to take the series.
Sophomore RHP Shelby Miller (4-4) was included on this week’s Honor Roll. She led the Cougars to its fourth win in conference play as she pitched her second complete game (8 inn.) of the season. She allowed only one earned run, three hits and walked a batter while striking out another.
Houston Softball heads to Huntsville, Texas, for a midweek game against Sam Houston State on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. The Cougars continue conference play as they travel to conference leader UCF this weekend for a three-game series.
