QUEENS, N.Y. -
St. John’s junior pitcher Kat Lawrence was named to the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll as announced by the conference office Monday.
Lawrence tossed her fourth complete game and second shutout of the season in St. John’s 8-0, five-inning victory over Fairfield on March 17 at Red Storm Field. The junior hurler struck out five over five frames while allowing just two hits. On the season, Lawrence is 6-2 with a 4.79 ERA and 56 strikeouts over 45.1 innings of work. Her six wins are the fourth most among BIG EAST pitchers and her 56 K’s rank ninth in the conference.
The Rohnert Park, Calif., native has received conference honors twice this season. Lawrence was named to the first BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll of the season on Feb. 22 following her strong showing from the circle in the Charleston Southern tournament (Feb. 19-20).
St. John’s will host Hofstra on Wednesday, March 24, at Red Storm Field. First pitch is slated for 3 p.m.
