Howard earns SoCon honor
SPARTANBURG, S.C. — After 8.2 scoreless innings in Saturday's 1-0 win over the Western Carolina Catamounts, Sam Howard was named the Southern Conference Pitcher of the Week for May 12.
Howard combined with Matt McCall to throw Georgia Southern's fourth shutout of the season after Stryker Brown hit a walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth.
The junior struck out 10 batters on the day and walked just two, allowing just five singles to WCU, which came into the weekend in first place but dropped the series to GSU.
