Haley Henshaw is impacting Tulsa’s success in the early going of the softball season. Her performance this past week reflected that as she was named Conference USA Hitter of the Week by the league on Monday.
Henshaw, a Catoosa (Okla.) product, went 6-for-8 in a four of the Golden Hurricane‘s wins, including a three-game sweep of Charlotte in Conference USA action. She produced one home run, a double, and scored or drove in 12 runs.
In the series finale on Sunday against the 49ers, Henshaw went 2-for-2 with five RBI, including a two-run single and a three-run double. In the second game of Saturday’s doubleheader, she went 2-for-2 with one run and two RBI. Then in last Wednesday's out-of-conference meeting with Bradley, she went 2-for-3 with three RBI and a two-shot home run.
The Golden Hurricane (28-3 overall, 6-0 in Conference USA play) play at Missouri State on Wednesday, then return home this weekend for a three-game series against UTEP, with two games on Saturday and one on Sunday.
