The Pasadena, Md., native also extended her team-leading hitting streak to 10 games against UNC this weekend. Sheridan finished 5-for-9, with three runs scored and one RBI against the Tar Heels in a three-game series.
At the Yellow Jacket Invitational, Sheridan finished 1-for-1, with two walks and two runs scored in a Tech 12-0 victory in five innings over Boston University. In game two versus Oakland University, Sheridan finished 3-for-4, with two runs batted in and two runs scored in a 7-4 win.
