Logan Harrell named Sun Belt softball Player of the Week

Logan Harrell was chosen for the Sun Belt Player of the Week after a phenomenal performance in a close loss to Mercer University and the Eagle Round Robin tournament last week.

Harrell, a senior outfielder and catcher, has been a key factor this season, due to her consistency. In the Eagles’ last match with Morehead State, a 19-2 victory in five innings, Harrell hit a grand slam with bases loaded.

With GS down at the bottom of the sixth inning, she hit a double and a home run against IUPUI, allowing GS to cut the lead and eventually surpass the Jaguars and win 8-3 in the first game of Eagle Round Robin after two players unexpectedly went down with injury.

She’s managed to hit 0.323 so far on the season. In their last weekend of play she recorded four home runs, eight RBIs and three walks. GS went 5-1 in play, and will continue play with a tournament in the 2019 NC State Invitational.
