Geri Ann Glasco
March 26, 2013
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Georgia freshman Geri Ann Glasco has been named the Louisville Slugger/NFCA National Player of the Week for March 18-24. The honor comes on the heels of Glasco being named the Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Week and the College Sports Madness National Player of the Week. Glasco becomes the fourth Georgia player to receive the honor and the first since Kristyn Sandberg in 2011.
Glasco helped the Bulldogs to a 4-0 record last week, including a three-game sweep of SEC foe Ole Miss. The Watkinsville, Ga., native hit .600 on the week, going 6-for-10, with eight RBI and seven runs scored. She also slugged 2.100 and had an OPS of 2.788 after reaching base nearly 70 percent of the time. Of her six hits last week, five were home runs, four of which came in four-straight games.
She recorded her first multiple home run game of the season against Ole Miss, hitting a home run in consecutive at bats. In her first at bat of the second game of the double-header, Glasco hit a home run, her third in three at bats. The five round-trippers last week brought her season total to 12, tied for most on the team and the most ever by a Georgia freshman.
In addition to her offensive numbers, Glasco led the Bulldogs in the circle, picking up three wins to improve to 15-1 on the year. She combined for two one-hit shutouts in her three appearances last week. She allowed just six hits in 12 innings of work and struck out eight.
For the season, Glasco leads the team with a .452 batting average, a .935 slugging percentage and an on-base percentage of .542.
Glasco and the Bulldogs return to action on Wednesday, March 27 when they look to win their 16th straight game as they host Georgia Southern at 6 p.m., at Jack Turner Stadium.
