It was announced on Monday that freshman P/1B Geri Ann Glasco has been named both the College Sports Madness National Player of the Week and also the SEC Freshman of the Week for her performance this past week against Gardner-Webb and Ole Miss. Glasco tallied a perfect 3-0 record from the pitching circle, including pitching 4 innings of no-hit ball against Ole Miss in Game One of the series. At the plate, Glasco exploded for six hits in ten plate appearances, giving her a .600 batting average for the week. Of Geri Ann’s six hits, five were home runs and one was a smoked single up the middle. On the week, Geri Ann not only batted .600 with five long balls, but she had an OBPS (OB% + SLG%) of 2.788–absolutely outstanding power no matter the level of play!
The recognition by the SEC is the second Freshman of the Week honor that Glasco has garnered this year, and the national recognition is her first. Geri Ann has a long and illustrious career on the horizon as a Bulldog, and should be the top contender at this point for the SEC Freshman of the Year award. If Glasco can continue her dominance in both the circle and at the plate, it would come as no surprise for her to garner some pretty momentous accolades by the time the season is up! No doubt about it, Geri Ann is an absolutely incredible hitter, and while she has to work twice as hard at pitching, she is becoming 1% better with each inning she pitches. She has the ability to not only keep the Dawgs in any game with her bat, but her mixing of speeds and movement in the circle are what have also helped her amass the impressive 15-1 record that she currently owns.
Go Geri Ann!!!
As always, Go Dawgs!
