Henry Named SEC Pitcher of the Week

FAYETTEVILLE – University of Arkansas sophomore Katy Henry has been selected as the Southeastern Conference Pitcher of the Week, the organization announced.

Henry collected a 3-1 record after the Ole Miss and Florida series and finished with a 0.91 ERA for the week with four starts and four complete games. Overall, Henry has a 9-6 record, which is a career-high win total for the right-handed pitcher.

Arkansas softball head coach Jamie Pinkerton said he was happy with Henry’s performance after she appeared in every game of the Florida series while she posted a 0.75 ERA in two starts and two complete games.

“That was a well deserved honor,” he said. “She pitched admirably and kept us in all three ball games. I’m really proud of her.”

The Poteau, Okla., native, tallied 31 strikeouts and held opponents to a .213 average and four earned runs. Henry’s lone loss of the week was a 3-2 10-inning thriller at Florida. She held the Gators to two earned runs and a .188 batting average, which was .91 points below their average prior to the series.

Henry is only the fourth pitcher in Lady Razorback history to receive the award and the most recent selection was Heather Schlichtman in 2004.
