WHITTIER, Calif. – The Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) office released their Athletes of the Week for Softball Monday and Sophomore Jannelle Ha (Arcadia, Calif.) received recognition for the first time as the Pitcher of the Week.
In the 12th week of voting Ha becomes the fourth Poet to receive accolades this year and the second to be named the Pitcher of the Week (Sam Casanas (La Habra, Calif.) – March 18).
Ha led Whittier to a double-header sweep of La Verne (8-4, 4-2) with a win in game one in the circle. She pitched a complete game (7.0 innings) and allowed four runs (one earned) on seven hits and struck out two. She was also 2-for-7 at the dish in the series with an RBI and a .286 average.
Whittier looks to keep their winning streak intact this Friday, April 26 when they travel to go take on Occidental College. Game times set for 2:00pm and 4:00pm.
