BOCA RATON, Fla. - Florida Atlantic University senior Kylee Hanson has been named Conference USA Pitcher of the Week. It's the 11th time in her career that she has won the award.

On Thursday night, Hanson threw a complete game two-hitter and recorded 10 strikeouts in a 1-0 victory over North Florida. On Friday night, she threw another complete game shutout, this time allowing just four hits and striking out 10 to down N.C. State 2-0. She capped the weekend off with her third complete game shutout, holding Michigan State to three hits in the 5-0 win.
