Dodson Named Conference Pitcher of the Week

THOMASVILLE, NC - Lees-McRae Lady Bobcats softball player Amanda Dodson has been selected as the NCAA Division II Conference Carolinas softball Pitcher of the Week during week number nine in the 2008 season. This is the second week that Dodson has received the Pitcher of the Week award, claiming the honor for the first time this season in week number four.

Dodson threw the first no-hitter in Lees-McRae softball history Sunday afternoon, striking out four over seven innings and only giving up three walks to the 24 batters she faced. The Lady Bobcats won the contest 4-0 on Pfeiffer University's senior night, and used the momentum from Dodson's no-hitter to sweep the Lady Falcons and take the second game of the double header 3-2.
