Hull's 17 Strikeouts Earn Conference Weekly Honor

VIRGNIA BEACH, Va. – Hanna Hull of the Virginia Wesleyan University softball team has been named the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) Pitcher of the Week for the week ending on Feb. 18, 2018.

The returning Division III Player of the Year didn't miss a beat as she helped the Marlins to a 5-1 win in the season opener against Meredith College. Hull racked up 17 strikeouts in the victory, 12 of which had the batter fanning on the third strike. In three of the innings, the sophomore accounted for all three outs from the circle.

Last season, the DIII Freshman of the Year totaled 32 victories and an Earned-Runs Average of just .51, both of which led the entire country.

Hull and the rest of the Marlins will take to the field at 2 p.m. on Wednesday as the team hosts North Carolina Wesleyan for a doubleheader at Marlin Park.
