RUSTON -- Louisiana Tech senior pitcher Krissi Oliver was named LATechSports.com Student-Athlete of the Week on Monday after she recorded two wins, both complete-game shutouts, and posted a 0.00 ERA last week for the Lady Techsters.
Oliver recorded her first victory of the week on March 23 against Alcorn State at the Lady Techster Softball Complex. In seven innings, she allowed six hits and only one walk, while recording six strikeouts.
During her second outing of the week at Boise State on March 28, she helped lead Tech to a 3-0 victory in game one by giving up only five hits and striking out three in seven innings.
The native of Glendale, Arizona held opponents to a miniscule .196 batting average during her two-game span.
The Western Athletic Conference awarded her with Pitcher of the Week honors for her efforts on Monday.
