For the third time in the past four weeks, Seward County pitcher Erin Roufosse has been named the KJCCC Pitcher of the Week. Joining Roufosse with Jayhawk honors this week is Lady Saints 3rd baseman Brianna Baron who earns the Player of the Week award after hitting .538 in four straight Seward County wins. Roufosse pitched Seward to a pair of wins this week while throwing 16 innings without giving up an earned run. Thursday against Garden City the Lady Saints sophomore struck out a career high 14, allowing just 2 unearned runs while going the distance in a 9 inning extra inning win for Seward. On Saturday Roufosse threw her 4th consecutive shutout by working 7 innings striking out 5 and walking just 1. On the week the right-hander struck out 19 while walking just one. Baron paced Seward to a 4-0 week on the offensive end by hitting at a .538 clip in the 4 Lady Saint wins. She had 3 multiple hit games on the week including going 5 for 8 in a double header sweep of Garden City on Thursday. The pair will lead their Lady Saints into more Jayhawk West Conference action this week as they tangle with Barton Wednesday at 3:00 at Lady Saints Field.
