Archer, Sanders sweep MACJC awards

PERKINSTON — Mississippi Gulf Coast swept the MACJC Softball Player of the Week voting, with Shelby Archer winning Player of the Week and Avery Sanders winning Pitcher of the Week.

 

Archer, a freshman infielder from Pearl River Central, slugged 3 home runs and drove during a 3-1 week for the Lady Bulldogs, including a split with No. 3. LSU Eunice. She had hits in all four games, including a two-home run game against Marion Military in a 7-5 win to clinch a DH sweep. She hit the first LSU-E pitch for a solo shot in a 4-3 loss in the opener, then went 2-for-3 with a double in a 9-5 win.

 

Sanders, a sophomore right-hander from Thibodaux, La., allowed only one earned run in the win over LSU-E, and also picked up a save. In the win against the Lady Bengals, she struck out eight and walked just two. She got the save in a 6-4 win over Marion Military with 2.1 innings of one-hit scoreless relief, striking out three.

 

Archer and Sanders are now eligible for NJCAA Player of the Week honors.
