Charlotte Morgan, a freshman from Moreno Valley, Calif., led Alabama in hitting last week with a .357 avg. (5-of-14). She helped lead the Crimson Tide to four SEC road wins in five games over spring break. She hit home runs against both Florida and South Carolina to give her a home run in all three SEC series this season. Her two-run home run against South Carolina came in the 10th inning and ended up being the difference in a 5-3 victory.
For the week Morgan hit two home runs and recorded four RBI. She also scored four runs and tallied one stolen base. She also walked once and moved a runner over with a sacrifice bunt. In the first game of the week against Florida she went 1-for-3 with a walk and two runs scored. She was 2-for-4 in the second game of the double header with a two-run home run.
She started four games at first base and pitched in two games. She threw three scoreless innings in the extra-inning victory over South Carolina to improve to 6-1 on the year. She only allowed one hit and struck out three batters to close out the game.
