McMurry Softball First: Jackson Picks Up ASC Pitcher of the Week

In an inaugural season where "firsts" are going to be the norm, McMurry University softball added another milestone as freshman pitcher Kamwren Jackson (Abilene, Texas/Wylie H.S.) was named as the American Southwest Conference "Pitcher of the Week." Jackson is the first-ever War Hawks' player to garner weekly conference honors.

In McMurry's second game versus Trinity University of last Friday's first-ever contests in program history, Jackson was lights out in relief. Jackson came on in the third inning and threw five-scoreless innings, as McM tried to claw its way back in a 7-4 setback. She permitted just two hits, struck out two Tigers' batters and did not issue a walk.

The War Hawks will take on their second opponent this Friday (Feb. 9), hosting Southwestern University in a non-conference doubleheader at Red Bud Park (Field #1). First pitch is slated for 3 p.m.
