LA Tech's Miles Earns LSWA Award



March 14, 2013

BATON ROUGE - Louisiana Tech's Kristen Miles took home Louisiana Sports Writers Association [LSWA] Hitter of the Week awards Thursday as voted up by the state's sports information directors.

A freshman outfielder for the Lady Techsters, Miles hit safely in four games last week. She turned in a .615 batting average, reached base safely in 11 of 16 plate appearances and scored seven runs as Louisiana Tech went 3-1.

She collected a career-best four hits during a 13-4 win over Southern and scored a career-high three runs twice in the weekend series versus Southern.

It's the first such honor of Miles career.
