Lyon's Cassie White named TranSouth Pitcher of the Week

BATESVILLE, AR (Lyon) - Lyon College senior softball player Cassie White has been named the TranSouth Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Week, the conference announced late Monday.

During last week's action, White picked up three victories and a save, as the Scots won five-of-six conference games over that span.

In the first game of the week at Mid-Continent (Ky.), White struck out six batters in seven innings in the circle for the Scots, helping Lyon defeat the Lady Cougars, 6-4. After winning the first game of the doubleheader against Bethel (Tenn.) on Thursday in relief, White stepped up in game, recording her first save of the year.

On Saturday, the Savannah, Tenn., native pitched a senior day gem to shut down a very good Martin Methodist College squad, 2-1. With the win over the RedHawks, White set the school record for wins in a season at 10.

Lyon looks to continue their four-game win streak at home today (April 19) as they host a conference doubleheader against Freed-Hardeman (Tenn.) beginning at 2 p.m.
