Gunderson Nabs A-10 Pitcher of the Week Honor

KINGSTON, R.I. - Rhode Island senior Sarah Gunderson was named the Atlantic 10 Pitcher of the Week, the conference announced Monday afternoon.

Gunderson (1-0) pitched a complete-game win over Seton Hall Sunday at the Elon Softball Classic, allowing just one run in a 2-1 victory. The Upper Saddle River, N.J., product had two appearances on the week, pitching 13.0 innings and striking out 12 batters.
