Karlyn Pickens named SEC Freshman of the Week for third straight time

By Ken Lay,


For the third consecutive time, Lady Vols’ pitcher Karlyn Pickens has been named SEC Freshman of the Week.

Pickens made her first conference star, pitched a one-hit complete-game shutout in Tennessee’s 1-0 victory against Ole Miss in the series finale Saturday.

Pickens (4-1) allowed one hit and three walks against the Rebels, while recording eight strikeouts.

In four starts this season, the Weaverville, North Carolina native has pitched four complete games. She pitched a perfect game March 4 versus Appalachian State.

No. 5 Tennessee (20-1, 3-0 SEC) will play Austin Peay Wednesday at the Midstate Classic in Columbia, Tennessee.

First pitch is slated for 6:30 p.m. EDT.
