While I was busy working on another FIU story you'll see here this morning, the 11-5 softball team got some Conference USA notice.
Freshman pitcher Megan Kugelmann threw two innings of perfection against Siena Friday and a no-hitter (one hit by pitch, one error originally scored a hit) Saturday against Central Connecticut State in a six-inning run rule game. For that, she shared Conference USA Pitcher of the Week with UTEP's Kaitlin Fifeld.
Also sharing a weekly award were co-Players of the Week junior Stephanie Texeira and Charlotte's Lizzy Birch. Texeira drew four walks, hit three home runs, five other hits and piled up 12 RBI. Texeira's seven home runs, 23 RBI and preposterous 1.205 slugging percentage lead CUSA.
