Morgan DowdyMay 9, 2011
With back-to-back shut outs of Radford to give CSU the double-header sweep and series victory, softball pitcher Morgan Dowdy has been named this week’s CSU Athlete of the Week.
Dowdy did what no one in the Big South has been able to do since 2008 and that is shut out the Highlanders, and Dowdy did it for 14-straight innings as CSU won both games of the double header 3-0. The pair of victories helped CSU tie the program record for Big South wins in a season, and was the first victory over the Highlanders for CSU since the 2006 season.
Also nominated: Nick Chinners (Baseball), Megan Lombard (Softball), Ali Williams (Baseball)
Charleston Southern sophomore Bobby Ison has been named this week’s CSU Student-Athlete of the Week following his performance for the Buccaneers against Radford, Savannah State and USC Upstate this past weekend.
