FORT MYERS, Fla. – Senior Courtney Platt (Naples, Fla./Gulf Coast) recorded 10 RBI and sophomore Stephanie Sullivan (Venice, Fla./Venice) pitched two shutouts on the week en route to their Player of the Week and Pitcher of the Week honors, respectively, as announced by the conference office on Monday.
Platt hit .636 over the weekend, going 7-for-11 with five runs scored and 10 RBI for her second-ever weekly award. She blasted her fourth and fifth home runs of the season, including a three-run shot against ETSU to open a nine-run first inning.
