The Gulf South Conference announced its latest Softball Pitcher of the Week on Wednesday, and the University of Alabama in Huntsville’s Whitney Gilbert captured the honor for the period ending March 24.

The senior made two appearances on the week and turned in her most impressive performance of the season as she allowed just one hit in a five-inning victory over Stillman while striking out eight. For the week, she only gave up three hits and one earned run in 8.1 innings, and she lowered her ERA to 2.35 which was fourth in the conference in games through Sunday.

Gilbert also ranked fifth in the league in strikeouts with 55 through the period.

The pitcher and her teammates will return to action on Wednesday as they take on Union in a road doubleheader that begins at 1 p.m.
