BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Freshman pitcher Shelby Wickersham was tabbed as SEC Freshman of the Week.
Shelby had one the best debuts in the circle a freshman could have as she threw the sixth no-hitter by a rookie in program history. She tallied two strikeouts in five innings of work. The Metairie, Louisiana native is just the second freshman to throw a no-hitter in her debut. Dani Hofer threw a no-no in 2007 in her first game as a Tiger. Regardless of class, Wickersham is the fourth Tiger to throw a no-hitter in her debut.
The Tigers went 6-0 in the Tiger Classic, run-ruling every opponent on the weekend. In 30 innings, the Tigers scored 73 runs, which is the most runs scored in any six-game stretch in program history.
Next up, the Tigers head to the inaugural St. Pete/Clearwater Invitational, opening the weekend with Oklahoma State on Thursday at 9 a.m. CT on ESPNU.
