Morgan Spearman, Angelo State University, SO, Outfield, Kennadale, Texas, Kennadale HS
Spearman hit two game-winning grand slams on Friday to help propel the 16th-ranked Angelo State softball team to a 3-0 week at the South Central Shootout. The Belles trailed No. 12 Arkansas at Monticello 6-3 in the top of the seventh until Spearman hit her first career grand slam. ASU went on to earn a 9-6 victory. Hours later, Spearman did it again. This time the Belles trailed Henderson State 3-1 in the bottom of the sixth, but the sophomore changed that with a swing of the bat. She took the first pitch over the center-field wall to secure a 5-3 win.

Meghan Brown, West Texas A&M University, SR, Catcher, Houston, Texas, Cinco Ranch HS
Brown has one of her best weekends of her career at the plate as the No. 5 Lady Buffs went 5-1 in the Lady Buff Classic in Canyon, Texas. The senior catcher hit .563 with three doubles, four home runs and 12 RBI for a slugging percentage of 1.500. Brown also walked three times, putting her just 32 away from the NCAA Division II career record. In the opening game win against New Mexico Highlands on Sunday afternoon, Brown went 3-for-3 at the plate with a double and a home run to drive in six runs in the 10-1 run rule win.

Marci Womack, West Texas A&M University, SR, Pitcher, Sulphur Springs, Texas, Sulphur Springs HS
Womack continued to dominate in the circle as the No. 5 Lady Buffs went 5-1 this past weekend at the Lady Buff Classic in Canyon, Texas. The senior right-hander threw 16.0 innings in three wins, giving up three runs on eight hits with 15 strikeouts and just four walks for an ERA of 0.88 in three complete games with one shutout. The Sulphur Springs, Texas native followed up her first career no hitter last weekend with a one hitter in the tournament opener against #24 Colorado School of Mines in a 9-1 WT win. Womack moved to 5-0 on the season with an ERA of 0.54 with 33 strikeouts and an opponent batting average of .129 with five complete games and two shutouts.

Peyton Mosley, Abilene Christian University, SO, Pitcher, Coppell, Texas, Coppell HSMosley won both of ACU’s games at the rain-shortened invitational hosted by Midwestern State, first as a starter versus the No. 20 Mustangs, and then as a reliever against Fort Hays State. The Wildcats won each of their games in come-from-behind fashion thanks to Mosley’s gutsy efforts in the circle. Mosley was roughed up a little by the Mustangs in game one as they jumped out to a 2-0 first-inning lead, but afterward she allowed just four more hits over the next eight innings. Two of those hits came in the seventh as the Mustangs loaded the bases with one out, but Mosley left them all stranded by getting consecutive infield pop-ups. Then, in the ninth, with ACU clinging to a 4-3 lead, she left the game-tying run stranded at third base with a fly ball to center. Mosley’s clutch pitching abilities continued into the game versus Fort Hays State, as head coach Bobby Reeves brought her into the game in the fifth with no outs, runners at second and third, and the Wildcats trailing 4-0. Mosley responded to the challenge by striking out the first two batters she faced, and then got an infield pop up to squash the scoring threat. She then retired the side in order in the sixth, and left another runner stranded in scoring position in the seventh. The Wildcats won the game for Mosley by scoring seven times in the bottom of the seventh.
