LANDRY MOORE NAMED SOUTHLAND SOFTBALL HITTER OF THE WEEK
Landry Moore used a fourth inning explosion in the finale of the Islander Classic to power her way to the Southland Conference Hitter of the Week award. Moore, a junior catcher from Houston, hit .750 on the week with six RBI and two home runs to take her first-ever weekly honor.
After going 1-for-2 with a double in her first start of the tournament against Boston College, Moore went 2-for-2 with a grand slam and a two-run homer against Southern on Sunday afternoon to finish the week with 2.500 slugging percentage and .800 on-base percentage. The six RBI in one inning set a new Islander record after Brittany Tucker had five in one inning the day before for TAMUCC.
Overall on the week, Moore was 3-for-4 with six RBI, one double, two home runs and one walk. For the season, Moore is hitting .600 with a 2.000 slugging percentage and a .667 on-base percentage. She also has one sacrifice hit and two runs scored.
Moore and the Islanders are back in action starting Thursday when they host the Holiday Inn Emerald Beach Invitational at Chapman Field. First up for the Islanders is Houston Baptist at 3:00 PM on Thursday afternoon. TAMUCC will also play North Dakota and UL Monroe twice each throughout the weekend.
