Belton (March 5, 2012) -- University of Mary Hardin-Baylor softball player Caitlin Wells has been named American Southwest Conference West Division Hitter of the Week for the week ending March 3rd. Wells, a senior outfielder from Spring High School, batted .500 over 14 at bats at the ASC First Pitch Tournament in Farmers Branch over the weekend. She had two doubles, a triple and a home run while scoring five runs and stealing three bases. Wells also walked once for an on-base percentage of .571 as UMHB’s leadoff hitter.
The UMHB softball team is 4-7 on the season with six of those losses coming against teams ranked in the Top 25 in the nation by the National Fastpitch Coaches’ Association. The Cru will open ASC West Division play with a four-game series against Concordia Texas this weekend. The two teams will open that series with a 4:00 PM doubleheader at Dee Dillon Field in Belton on Friday.
