GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – NC State sophomore shortstop Renada Davis and sophomore pitcher Emily Weiman have been named Atlantic Coast Conference Softball Player and Pitcher of the Week, respectively, as announced Tuesday.
Davis led the Wolfpack offensive in a three-game sweep of Boston College, extending her hitting streak to nine consecutive games – all wins for NC State – to close out the regular season. During that streak, she has gone 18-for-35 (.514) with seven home runs and 16 RBIs.
A native of Tomball, Texas, Davis had ten hits in 15 at-bats in four games on the week, with a victory over Elon and the sweep of the Eagles. She connected on four home runs, including her first career grand slam, to move into a tie for the national lead with 24 on the season and is now five shy of the ACC single-season record of 29 set by Georgia Tech’s Jen Yee in 2010.
Weiman set an NC State school record with 28 wins in a season with four consecutive victories in the final week of the regular season. She closed out the season with wins in her final nine starts to set the new school mark and pass former ACC Pitcher of the Year Abbie Sims.
In the four starts last week, the righthander from Pasadena, Md., struck out 26 batters to go 4-0. She had a season-high 12 strike outs in the series opener against Boston College, as she earns her fifth ACC Pitcher of the Week honor this season.
