Unionís Leah Gronberg Earns Second Straight Pitcher of the Week Honor

Jackson, TNóLeah Gronberg, a freshman from College Station, Texas, was named the TranSouth Pitcher of the Week. This is the second consecutive week that Gronberg has received this honor and it marks the fourth straight time that Union has nabbed the award, teammate Rachel Murray receiving it the other two times.

On the week, Gronberg had a record of 2-0 on the week. She tallied six strikeouts in a 10-1 victory over Trevecca Nazarene and added seven more in a 5-3 win over Lipscomb University. For the year, Leah has a record of 18-1 with an ERA of 0.95, third best in the TranSouth. She ranks second in the conference in wins (18), strikeouts (121), and complete games (18), and shutouts (7). Gronberg also has two saves to on the season.

The Lady Bulldogs are currently 39-3 overall and 15-1 in the TranSouth Conference. Union is ranked No. 3 in the latest NAIA Top 25 Poll. They have won an outstanding 25 of their last 26 games. Head coach Brian Dunn and the Lady Bulldogs are looking to win the TranSouth Conference for the third straight season. In May of this season, Union will host the NAIA Region XI Softball Tournament in which the winner will earn a trip to the NAIA Softball World Series. Union made their last and only trip to the World Series in 1999 and is certainly focused on nothing short of that same goal this season. The Lady Bulldogs will play their next home game today against the Lambuth Eagles at 2:00 PM.
