·2 min read

One day after Braydon Webb and Brady Tygart were named SEC Player and Freshman of the Week respectively, two softball players were also awarded by the league for their stellar weeks.

Hannah McEwen has earned SEC Player of the Week, and Mary Haff takes home SEC Pitcher of the week honors following Arkansas’ 4-0 week, which included a clinch of the SEC regular-season title.

Here is what the SEC said about each player:

Arkansas’ Hannah McEwen, a redshirt senior outfielder from San Diego, Calif., batted .692 over four games this past week as the Razorbacks clinched at least a share of the SEC regular-season title. McEwen recorded nine hits, including a pair of triples, three runs scored and nine RBI. She also posted a 1.000 slugging percentage, a 1.000 fielding percentage in left field and a .714 on-base percentage.

Arkansas’ Mary Haff, a redshirt senior right-hander from Winter Haven, Fla., went 3-0 in the circle and allowed two earned runs in 13.0 innings of work. Haff retired the first 12 batters she faced in game two against South Carolina, and then combined with Chenise Delce for the five-inning shutout in game three. To start the week, she retired all nine batters she faced, including four strikeouts, to pick up the win against Central Arkansas. On the week, Haff held her opponents to a .152 batting average.

The No. 4 Razorbacks travel to Bryan-College Station, Texas this weekend to close out the regular season by taking on Texas A&M. Game one of the three-game series begins at 6 p.m. CDT.
