LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Texas Lutheran's Maitlin Raycroft won her second-straight Louisville Slugger/NFCA Division III National Pitcher of the Week honor, and Averett's Kaitlyn Aherron scored Louisville Slugger/NFCA Division III National Player of the Week recognition.

Raycroft, a junior right-hander for the 12th-ranked (26-4) Bulldogs, continued to dominate Division III hitters, winning four games over the last week to extend her own victory streak to 14 and help the Bulldogs capture their 26th straight game.

Last week, Raycroft set the Division III record for no-hitters in a season with her sixth, and she nearly added a seventh, settling for an one-hit shutout of Centenary. She also had a five-hit shutout of Hardin-Simmons, picked up a victory in relief against Centenary and tossed 6.2 stellar innings in another triumph over Centenary.

In her four games, Raycroft allowed just two earned runs and three walks while striking out 39 over 22.2 innings.
