Junior co-captain Allison Silver’s spectacular performance over the weekend brought her second Sun Belt Pitcher of the Week honor this season.

The lefty ace posted three straight victories over the past week while allowing only one run in a total of 19.0 innings.

Over the week she has allowed 13 hits, one earned and three unearned runs, struck out seven batters and walked two in her three appearances on the mound.

Silver started her week off against Eastern Kentucky, her solid complete game helping the Hilltoppers brush past the Colonels in a 7-2 victory.

Against NMSU Silver added her second shutout win of the season with an 8-0 victory over the Aggies. She only allowed one run in Western’s 7-2 win, her third complete-game win of the week.

Silver now has five SBC pitcher of the week accolades, earning the achievement three times last season.
