Troy softball player named NFCA top performer

A day after being named the Sun Belt Conference Softball Pitcher of the Week for the second time this season, Troy's Ashlyn Williams was named a Top Performer by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association, as announced by the organization on Tuesday.

Georgia's Kristn Sandberg was named the NFCA National Player of the Week for games played April 4-10.

Williams appeared in four conference games last weekend and figured into a decision in all four of those contests. Williams started three games, recording a 3-0 record while also recording a save in the other contest of the week for the Trojans.

The Sun Belt Conference Preseason Pitcher of the Year recorded a 0.33 ERA, as she allowed just one run to cross the plate in 21 innings pitched – that was a home run in the seventh inning against Western Kentucky out of the bullpen. Williams threw three complete games – including a two-hitter against South Alabama on the road Wednesday. She also allowed just nine total hits for the week, striking out 22 and walking just four. Opponents hit just .129 against the senior on the week as she pitched two two-hitters and a four-hitter for her victories.

Williams (12-1) leads the Sun Belt Conference in strikeouts with 190 and has a 2.08 ERA in 28 appearances. The Hattiesburg, Miss., native is 20th in the nation in strikeouts, 27th in strikeouts per seven innings (9.2), 14th in saves (3.0) and 16th in shutouts (7.0). Opposing batters are hitting just .192 off the pitching ace.

In addition to the national player of the week, the NFCA recognizes top performances of the week. Williams is the second Sun Belt Conference softball player to be recognized by the NFCA this season. Louisiana-Lafayette's Gabriele Bridges was named the NFCA National Player of the Week earlier this season on February 15.
