Milstid earns PBC Pitcher of the Week honors

Georgia Southwestern junior Tiffany Milstid has been named the Peach Belt Conference Pitcher of the Week for the week ending February 28.

Milstid went 2-0 for the Lady Hurri­canes, allowing no runs in seven innings pitched.

She began her week with five in­nings of shutout relief as GSW came back from a four-run deficit in the seventh inning and beat Georgia College on Tuesday. She allowed only two hits in the 7-6 win, with no walks allowed and two strikeouts.

Milstid then pitched a pair of one-hit innings against Wesleyan College on Saturday, striking out four of the seven batters she faced.

For the week, she held hitters to a .130 average with six strikeouts. 

Milstid becomes the first GSW softball player in the program's history to receive a PBC weekly award.  

The Lady Hurricanes are back in action on Friday with games against Alabama-Huntsville and North Alabama in day 1 of the West Georgia Invitational.
