Last weekend at the Southern Conference Softball Championship, junior hurler Brooke Parrott went 4-0 in the circle with a 1.12 ERA en route to being named the SoCon Tournament’s Most Outstanding Player. The league office named her the Southern Conference Student-Athlete of the Week on Wednesday afternoon.
Parrott went 4-0 in the circle with 14 strikeouts, four earned runs and a 1.12 ERA. She tossed two complete games, including a 10-inning outing in the first round against Western Carolina.
She added a complete-game shutout to her tally in Chattanooga’s 4-0 win over Samford to send the Mocs to the semifinals.
After earning a win in the Mocs’ 10-2 rout over the UNCG to reach the championship game, she earned the win in the title contest. She tossed five innings, starting and coming back in relief. In relief, she tossed two scoreless frames, getting the final six outs en route to Chattanooga 15th SoCon Tournament Crown.
This is the 10th time a Chattanooga student-athlete has earned the accolade. It’s the fourth time a member of the softball team has (Parrott, Hannah Wood and Reagan Armour).
