DeLozier Selected as Heartland Conference Hitter of the Week
WACO, Texas Freshman infielder Rylee DeLozier was named the Heartland Conference Hitter of the Week as announced by the Heartland Conference on Tuesday (Feb. 27) morning.
DeLozier, a freshman from Collinsville, Oklahoma, paced the Hillcat offense with a .625 batting average with five hits, one double and one home run in a sweep at St Edward's this weekend. She posted three RBI, all on a three-run home run to left field in an 11-6 game one win at St. Edward's. In the nightcap, DeLozier went a perfect 4-for-4 at the plate to go with her three-run homer in the first game. She helped the Cats to their first-ever 2-0 start in Heartland Conference play with a doubleheader sweep of St. Edward's on Sunday in Austin, Texas. This is DeLozier's first weekly award.
RSU softball is currently on a nine-game winning streak, its longest winning streak since the 2013 season when the Cats started the season 30-0, and holds a 13-4 record and a 2-0 record in the Heartland Conference.
The Hillcats start a nine-game homestand on Wednesday (Feb. 28) with a doubleheader against Missouri Southern at 3 p.m. at the Diamond Sports Complex. Coverage will be available on the Hillcat Network at www.rsuhillcats.com/live.
