Junior pitcher Sarah Purvis pulverized the competition the first week of the season and the Southern Conference took notice.

Purvis was named SoCon Softball Pitcher of the Week.

Purvis has overpowered opposing hitters from the pitcher’s circle leading GSU to three wins over the weekend.

She started the season by flirting with a no-hitter against St. John’s University. She struck out 14 as the Eagles kicked off the season with a win.

Purvis ended the weekend with an 11-strikeout beat down of Tennessee Technological University.

Purvis struck out 31 batters in three games over the weekend leaving little doubt as to why she was named SoCon Preseason Pitcher of the Year before the team stepped on the field for its first game.

Purvis has an ERA of 1.11, which is the biggest reason she leads the SoCon with three victories.
