Randi Rupp, freshman pitcher, is the Sun Belt Conference Pitcher of the Week for the second time in a row.

Rupp allowed two earned runs in 24.1 innings last week, leading to the Bobcats to four wins. In her four starts, opposing hitters struck out 31 times and recorded eight hits.

Rupp, averaging 8.4 strikeouts per seven innings, is fourth in program history in season strikeouts (267). She is four strikeouts away from moving into third place all-time.

The Bobcats’ cumulative earned run average is 6.62 excluding Rupp. The team’s earned run average drops to 3.97 when Rupp (2.83 earned run average) is included.

Texas State, 29-19 overall, has four games remaining before the Sun Belt Conference tournament.
