LAFAYETTE – Summer Ellyson has been selected as the Sun Belt Conference Pitcher of the Week.
The former Teurlings Catholic star earned a total of three wins in matchups against Troy and Texas State. In 18 innings of work combined against the Trojans and Bobcats, Ellyson gave up only five runs, scattered 13 hits and struck out a total of 22 hitters.
The senior right-hander has now collected SBC Pitcher of the Week honors a dozen times, and has now claimed at least one weekly award in each of the past four seasons.
It is also the second weekly award of the 2021 season for No. 13-ranked Louisiana (34-7, 16-2 SBC), joining Kandra Lamb’s honor back on March 30 following a sweep of South Alabama.
The Ragin’ Cajuns, which has received at least one SBC Player or Pitcher of the Week award since the inception of the league in 2000, now possesses 91 pitcher of the week awards in program history.
Louisiana returns to action at Yvette Girouard Field at Lamson Park on Tuesday with a game against Louisiana Tech. First pitch is set for 4 p.m.
