PERKINSTON — Mississippi Gulf Coast's Avery Sanders has been named MACJC Pitcher of the Week for April 25-31.
Avery Sanders, a sophomore right-hander from Thibodaux, La., got two wins for No. 9 Gulf Coast, including beating No. 1 Jones 12-2 in five innings. She held Jones to two unearned runs on four hits, striking out five.
Sanders shut out East Mississippi in her other start, winning 8-0 in six innings. It was another four-hitter that saw her strike out seven and walk just one.
