IT'S SAVANAH AGAIN: Lady Cardinal sophomore earns top accolade

​The Lady Cardinal softball team has been on a roll lately and so too has sophomore shortstop Savanah Martinez.

Martinez has been named the Region XIV Conference Player of the Week for a second straight week.

As well she should have been, considering these numbers:

RUNS SCORED -- 9

HITS -- 13

DOUBLES -- 2

HOME RUNS -- 4

RUNS BATTED IN -- 13

BATTING AVERAGE -- .619

And, if that's not enough, she also had a complete-game victory in the circle, striking out eight against Western Nebraska.

The Lady Cardinals, who have won nine of their last 11, are currently 17-13 overall and 4-2 in conference going into a doubleheader on the road Wednesday against Angelina. Action begins at 3 p.m.

The next home doubleheader for the Lady Cardinals is Saturday against Tyler. Action begins at 1 p.m.
