CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Coastal Carolina softball pitcher Christine Doyle (Teaneck, N.J.-Immaculate Heart Academy) was named Big South Softball Pitcher of the Week, Apr. 22. This is the third time this season that Doyle has been honored with the weekly award, as she has earned more weekly honors than anyone in the Big South this season.
Doyle was superb in a 4-0 win over UNC Wilmington last week. In getting her seventh shutout overall and fourth in her last five starts, Doyle scattered three hits and struck out eight, while giving up just one walk and limiting the Seahawks to a .130 clip at the plate. Doyle continues to lead the Lady Chants with a 16-6 record and a 1.37 ERA. Her 16 victories are the third most by a Coastal freshman and the eighth-best single-season mark in school history.
After a week off, Coastal Carolina is back on the field Wed., Apr. 24, at the College of Charleston for a 4 p.m. doubleheader.
