Georgia Tech's Brown Named ACC Softball Player of the Week

April 9, 2007

ATLANTA – Georgia Tech’s Savannah Brown was named Atlantic Coast Conference Softball Player of the Week, announced by the league office on Monday. Brown, a native of San Diego, Calif., led the 24th-ranked Yellow Jackets to a 2-1 series win over Florida State and a 4-1 record last week.

Brown began the week with a three-run home run against Furman to drive in the game’s first runs, going 2-for-4, to lead Tech to a 5-0 win. In the nightcap, she finished 2-for-4 in a 8-1 rout of the Lady Paladins.

Over the weekend, Brown walked twice in the opener in a tough loss, but led the Jackets to victory in the nightcap in style with three home runs, breaking a single-game school record, driving in six runs in the game for a 9-1 victory in six innings. In the final game of the series, she finished 1-for-3, getting robbed at the fence in right field to prevent her from her second hit of the game as the Rambling Wreck took the series 7-6.

Brown finished the week with an impressive 1.333 slugging percentage, four home runs, nine runs batted in, a .533 batting average and had two walks. She did not strike out a single time in five games and provided game winning RBIs in two of the four wins. She is now fourth all-time in Tech history with 29 career home runs.

She earns the ACC honor for the second time in her career, and first time this season. The Jackets will take on Western Carolina in a single game at Glenn Field on Wednesday at 4 p.m.
