KJCCC Kansas MTXE D1 Softball Athletes of the Week, Week 11, 2018
Brianna Robinson hit safely in all six games for Butler this week as the Grizzlies finished conference play undefeated for the second straight year. She was 10-17 at the plate (.588) and hit five home runs while driving in 14 runs – more than two per game. She had a monster day at Barton, hitting three home runs with nine RBI in the doubleheader.
Celina Sullivan went 4-0 this week, including her second no-hitter in the past two weeks. She struck out 36 batters in 17.1 innings, an average of more than two per inning. She allowed just six hits and only two runs. The runs, which came in the fifth inning against Barton, stopped her streak of 37.2 scoreless innings, but she has already thrown 12.1 scoreless innings since that. Against Seward, Sullivan threw all five innings in a run-rule shortened game, and then came back and threw the final 2.1 innings in game 2, getting the win as Butler overcame a 3-1 deficit.
