Alabama's Braud SEC Frosh Of Week
Alabama didn't get off to a great start in this softball season. Ranked second in the nation in pre-season polls, Bama lost two of three games to Missouri to start the season. But the Tide got back on track with five wins in the Stetson Invitational at Deland, Fla., winning the title with its third tourney win over 14th ranked Ohio State.
This week the Southeastern Conference recognized Kayla Braud as the Freshman of the Week for her part in leading the Crimson Tide to the title and improving Bama's record to 7-2.
Braud, an infielder from Eugene, Ore., batted .615 (8-for-13) with five runs and five RBI. She also had three stolen bases.
Braud batted 2-for-3 with three RBI against Rhode Island and followed that up with a 2-for-3 effort against Stetson and a 3-for-3 finale against Ohio State.
"You can see with experience that Kayla is becoming more and more comfortable at the plate," Coach Patrick Murphy said. "Her last game against a very good Ohio State team was her best. She set the table with a 3-for-3 performance and got our offense going in the right direction. Kayla is one of our true triple threats who will get better each weekend."
Murphy's Crimson Tide will be at UAB at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.
