BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – University of Georgia pitcher Morgan Montemayor has been named the Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Week according to an announcement made by the league on Monday.

 

Montemayor, a native of Phoenix, Ariz., helped the No. 1 Bulldogs complete a series sweep over No. 21 LSU by tossing a pair of complete-game shutouts. On Saturday, Montemayor limited the Tigers to just four hits while striking out three, and on Sunday, she only surrendered two hits while striking out a career-high 10 batters.

 

Montemayor's performance this past weekend improved her season record to 9-1, and she sports a 1.22 ERA with 60 strikeouts in 12 appearances.

 

The SEC Freshman of the Week recognition is the first league honor for Montemayor, and it marks the second time this season the Bulldogs have been recognized in the SEC weekly awards. Senior Megan Wiggins was named the SEC Player of the Week on Feb. 28.

 

The top-ranked Bulldogs return to action this week with five road contests starting with a double header at South Carolina on Wednesday. First pitch of the twin bill is slated for 4 p.m. ET. After that, Georgia travels to Tuscaloosa to play a three-game series with Alabama Friday through Sunday.
