Gregg named Conference Carolinas Pitcher of the Week

HIGH POINT, N.C. --- Lees-McRae College junior Laurel Gregg (Mars Hill, N.C.) has been named the Conference Carolinas Softball Pitcher of the Week for the first time this season, leading the Bobcats to a 4-0 worksheet last week as Lees-McRae did not allow a run in a pair of doubleheader sweeps against Concord University and Pfeiffer University.

Gregg opened the week with a one-hit shutout against Concord, striking out 11 batters over seven innings of work. She followed with six scoreless frames against Pfeiffer on Sunday, scattering three hits and striking out four. Gregg currently sports a 2.02 earned run average this season, recording 75 strikeouts in 97 innings of work thus far in 2012.

Lees-McRae returns to the diamond on Wednesday when the Bobcats host Erskine College in conference play at 3 p.m. at the Bobcat Softball Field.
