DAHLONEGA — North Georgia College & State University softball standout pitcher Sarah Phillips has been named the Peach Belt Conference Pitcher of the Week announced on Tuesday by the league’s office.

This marks the fifth time Phillips has been named the PBC pitcher of the week, earning the award the first week of the season during her freshman campaign, three times last season, and once again the opening week of the year in 2010.

The junior was nearly unhittable in three appearances last weekend at the Aiken Early Bird Tournament, tossing 14 1/3 innings and allowing just five hits and no earned runs while striking out 22 batters.

Phillips, a Powell, Ohio, native, picked up complete game victories in each of North Georgia’s first two wins of the season, starting off against Mount Olive and recording the five inning complete game win, allowing one hit and no earned runs while striking out seven.
