ST. LOUIS, Mo. – Eureka College sophomore shortstop Kerrigan Dura (Edwards, Ill./Brimfield H.S.) has been selected St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Hitter of the Week, according to an announcement from the league office, Monday afternoon. Dura hit .471 in six starts at last week's Fastpitch Dreams Spring Classic in North Myrtle Beach, S.C.
She went 8-for-17 last week with five RBI, two doubles and two triples. She added five walks to get on base at a .591 clip and slugged .824. Dura hit safely in four of the six games, had three multi-hit outings and struck out only once in 23 plate appearances.
Dura, who traveled to Myrtle Beach immediately following the Red Devils' NCAA women's basketball tournament game in Crestview Hills, Ky. on March 3, is now a three-time SLIAC Hitter of the Week recipient after earning the honor on March 21 and April 4 of last season.
The Red Devils went 4-4 on their spring trip to the Atlantic Coast and will return to action in their home opener on Wednesday, March 22 against USCAA Robert Morris-Springfield. The doubleheader is scheduled to begin at 3 p.m.
