​WORTH WATCHING – An incredible catch by Coastal Carolina’s Timi Tooley.



UCLA – The second week of the Mary Nutter Classic gave the Bruins the opportunity to go up against fellow ranked teams for the first time in the season, and Kelly Inouye-Perez’s team stepped up to the challenge. The Bruins’ five game results included two shutouts of Nebraska and Missouri and a five-inning run-rule of fellow top ten team LSU. Senior Kylee Perez recorded seven hits on the weekend, including three doubles, and scored five times.


McNeese State – A midweek victory over then-#9 Florida State started their Sunshine State road trip on a high note for the Cowgirls, as they bested the ‘Noles by a score of 6-1. On Sunday, they bested SEC foe Arkansas to end the trip with a perfect 7-0 record while in Florida. Hot-hitting star Erika Piancastelli hit four home runs on the weekend, driving in eight runs and scoring nine times.



Michigan – After a 2-2 showing in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge, the Wolverines finshed the Texas Invitational 3-2. Carol Hutchins’ team earned three shutout victories, but were shutout by Texas and in an extra-inning loss to Virginia Tech. Despite her team’s disappointing weekend, freshman pitcher Meghan Beaubien threw for nineteen innings and allowed just eight hits and one unearned run. 


Nebraska – After a victory over previously-undefeated Texas A&M to kick off their stay at the Mary Nutter, the Huskers took a run-rule loss to Mississippi State and a shutout loss at the hands of UCLA in their next two games. The Huskers were held to just five hits between the two shutout losses before rebounding with a victory over St. John’s. A loss to Washington closed out the tournament for Rhonda Revelle’s squad, and in disappointing fashion as the squad dipped below .500 on the weekend.

Carlee Wallace, Baylor – Wallace made program history early in her first season as a Bear, going 4-4 and hitting for the cycle in a run-rule shortened game against the Abilene Christian Wildcats in the second game of a doubleheader between the teams. Wallace drove in six runs on the day and was named the Big 12’s Player of the Week for her efforts. After a single in the first inning, Wallace hit a bases-loaded triple in the second inning; doubled in the fourth; and finished off the feat with a two-run home run in the fifth inning.

Kelly Barnhill, Florida – The Gators pitching ace went 3-0 on the weekend, posting both a no-hitter and a perfect game, against Iowa State and Georgia Southern, respectively. The junior hurler recorded twenty strikeouts between the two stellar outings, and posted forty-four Ks during the week in its entirety, thanks to a 15-strikeout performance against Oakland in midweek action and nine punch-outs against Maryland.

Miranda Elish, Oregon – After appearing in four of her team’s five games at the Mary Nutter  Classic, Elish posted a 0.56 ERA on the weekend, allowing just one run in 16.2 innings of work. She allowed just six hits and gave up three walks, striking out twenty-one batters en route to a perfect 2-0 record on the week with one save.
