IRVING, Texas - Senior southpaw Lauren Poole nabbed the Mean Green's fourth C-USA weekly honor, winning Conference USA Co-Pitcher of the Week after pitching back-to-back complete-game wins for North Texas at UTEP.
"I am really happy for Lauren, she has worked diligently on improving her mindset and trusting her abilities," head coach Tracey Kee said. "To see her have such a wonderful weekend at UTEP just proves what she is capable of."
