Lynchburg, Va. -- A 14-strikeout performance at the Old Dominion Athletic Conference tournament last weekend earned Lynchburg College softball pitcher Conner English this week's Hornet of the Week honor.

English, a senior from Altavista, Va., twirled a pair of shutouts in Lynchburg's victories over Eastern Mennonite, 8-0 in 5 innings, and No. 4 Randolph-Macon, 4-0, on Friday's first day of the tournament. She also appeared in both of the Hornets' Saturday contests.

The program's career leader in strikeouts, English carries an 11-3 record this season in 106 1/3 innings pitched. She has 76 strikeouts to just 25 walks in eight complete-game efforts.
