MARTIN EARNS ACC HONOR

Former Edmond Santa Fe softball standout Maddie Martin, The Oklahoman's Big All-City Player of the Year in 2011, was named the Atlantic Coast Conference's pitcher of the week earlier this week.

Martin, a freshman at Maryland, threw four complete games in the week, helping the Terrapins go 5-2.

She faced 109 batters, striking out 23 and giving up just four earned runs.

Against Oklahoma State, Martin threw six innings without allowing an earned run. She also picked up the win against Hampton and threw seven shutout inning against Valparaiso.

Martin limited hitters to a .223 average against her and finished the week with a 1.40 ERA. For the season, Martin is 4-7 with a 3.84 ERA and 38 strikeouts.

DEER CREEK DUO PLAYING WELL FOR HOGS

A pair of former Deer Creek baseball standouts had big games last week for Arkansas in the Razorbacks' final games before SEC play began.

In the first of two games against Alabama A&M, freshman Isaac Hellbusch hit his first collegiate home run, a two-run shot that broke a 1-1 tie in an eventual 20-2 Arkansas win.

Hellbusch added a two-run single later in the same inning and finished with five RBIs on the night.

Brian Anderson, a sophomore outfielder who is a regular starter for the Razorbacks, had a career-high four RBIs in the win.

Anderson leads Arkansas in runs scored (17) and extra-base hits (6).

Anderson and Hellbusch were coached at Deer Creek by Arkansas alum Ron Moore.

Arkansas (14-7, 1-2) starts a three-game series at South Carolina on Friday.
