UNCW's Jordan named pitcher of the week

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - UNCW senior Peyton Jordan has been named the CAA Softball Pitcher of the Week after several stellar performances for the Seahawks last week.

Jordan went 2-0 with a 0.27 earned run average in three starts. In 26 innings, she struck out 21 while allowing just one run and five walks.

Last Wednesday, Jordan struck out a career-high 10 over 12 innings against Campbell.

"Peyton has done a great job in the circle because she is filling the zone and trusting that her defense will get the job done behind her," UNCW coach Kristy Norton said.

This is the third time that Jordan has been named the pitcher of the week for the conference.
