The Sun Belt named Cajuns' senior Summer Ellyson its pitcher of the week.

The Lafayette native earned her 11th such award. Last week Summer threw a perfect game and struck out 24 batters in 17 innings pitched.

After five starts Ellyson has posted 1.27 ERA, striking out 42 batters in 27.2 innings pitched.

Louisiana faces a gauntlet of non-conference opponents on the road over the next two weeks. The 11th ranked Cajuns play Oklahoma State (14,) UAB, Ole Miss, Texas and Florida (7) before coming home to face Campbell March 4.
