@LATechSB Turkoly Named C-USA Player of the Week

April 9, 2018

RUSTON, La. – After leading her team to a 4-0 record including a three-game sweep over Charlotte this past weekend, Louisiana Tech junior outfielder Morgan Turkoly was named this week’s Conference USA Player of the Week.

The Sanger, Texas native spearheaded a Tech offense that scored 46 runs in the four wins as she batted .500 (7-of-14) with one double, two home runs, seven runs scored, seven RBI and three stolen bases. She registered an on-base percentage of .562 and a slugging percentage of 1.000 while extending her career long streak of consecutive games reach base safely to 26 contests.

Turkoly recorded multi-hit games in all three wins over the 49ers, scoring two runs in each game. She recorded two home runs and drove in a career-high seven runs in an 11-2 win over Charlotte in game two of the series. The seven RBI are tied for the second most in a single game in LA Tech history.

She was 2-for-4 with two runs and a stolen base in Tech’s 13-4 win in game one and then 2-for-5 with 2 runs and a stolen base in the 9-4 win in game 3. The only game Turkoly didn’t record a hit was a 13-1 win over Grambling State, a game Turkoly was pulled out of after two innings of play.

Turkoly ranks in the top 10 in Conference USA in batting average, on-base percentage, runs scored, hits, total bases, walks and hit by pitch.
